These easy popsicle stick sculptures pack a ton in one simple activity. There's art, engineering, and fine motor skills involved. My daughter's been wanting to use a glue gun for a while so this was the perfect first activity in showing her how to maneuver this indispensable craft tool as well as participate in a fun art project.
Step 1. Have your child draw and color directly on the popsicle sticks.
Step 2. Now the fun part. Heat up your glue gun and allow your child to glue the sticks together. Talk about building the sculpture - do you want to build tall or wide? How about creating a stable base first? What would make sense for the next stick and so on.
Once all your sticks are glued on, you're done! Now admire your pretty stick art sculpture and place it around the home for a unique, kid-designed piece of artwork.
