Need ideas for a final summer craft with your youngster before they head back to school? Actually I think these are so cool that parents and grandparents could do these themselves. Maybe place the finished product on the patio or along the backyard fence.
We keep our youngest grandson during the day in the summer while his dad is working. Adney and I are often looking for a craft. These "sticks" caught our eye on Pinterest. I wish I could give you a website for these, but alas, there was no one to credit.
So we did our own version of the project. You'll need 1x1 wooden sticks (36 inches in length) from the craft store or lumber supply. You'll also need paint, various embellishments, paint pens, and twine to be used for hanging their masterpiece.
What is it they say? A picture is worth a thousand words. Probably not used in this context, but I'll let my pictures talk you through the rest of this craft.
And there you have it! A fun craft for your kids, grands, or great-grands. And a fun craft for adults too! We have to do something to get us through these dog days of summer.
You know the saying, "Enjoy yourself. It's later than you think!" And it couldn't be more true about that precious time with your grandkids.
