Popsicle sticks have been around in the crafting world for a while because they're inexpensive, they're fun, and they provide endless options for what little imaginations can create. You'd be amazed at what a child can do with a simple wooden stick — and we've found a few standout projects that will have you saving up your Popsicle sticks all year long. Check them out below!

Directions:
1.      First, you want to begin coloring each Popsicle sticks individually using the orange, yellow, green and Red Kwik Stix.

Kids Treasure Box

o   Your favorite small toys and trinkets
Directions:
1.      Begin coloring each popsicle sticks individually using your desired color. (The brighter the better)
2.      To make the box lay 2 sticks down in the same direction (parallel) stick 2 on top so that it forms a square. Continue sticking 2 to the highest corners until you get the size you want. (Use small drops of glue, it does along way) Also - wait for the square to dry before you move it.
3.      To make the bottom lay down a layer of glue across the highest popsicle stick and then neatly line up all your bottom sticks.
4.      For the lid lay down the same amount of sticks you used for the bottom and glue 2 rows of popsicle sticks on top to hold everything together. Leave to dry.
5.      Once dry you can decorate the box further with stickers, glitter, and gemstones
6.      Add some little trinkets and the box is ready!
