Today I am sharing a kids craft activity using one of the most basic crafting supplies – Popsicle sticks. Popsicle sticks have so many possibilities. It is a fun, low-cost and easy to find material.
To make this Popsicle stick Whale you will need:
- Popsicle stick
- Acrylic paint and paint brush
- Super glue
- Sharpie/pen for adding details or googly eye
- Totem Whale
- Mini Brads
Let’s grab those craft supplies, follow the full tutorial below and have a “whale-y-good-time”! Happy crafting!
Unpack the totem whale and using acrylic paint of your choice paint the totem whale pieces.
Once dry, detach the pieces and start assembling the whale with the help of some mini brads.
Piece by piece, fully assemble the totem whale.
Add some more details to the totem whale. Adhere the Popsicle stick using super glue.
Lastly, add some finishing touches. Here I decided to draw the eye. However, if you happen to have some googly eyes, glue that instead.
Let everything dry completely before proudly displaying!
The fun part about the Popsicle stick animals is that you can add a magnet behind them or stick a thread on the back and use it an an ornament.
I hope you enjoyed this idea.
