Making of popsicle sticks Xmas decorations

Making popsicle sticks Xmas decorations consists of 4 stages:

  1. Gluing the base – to be made by an adult
  2. Painting – to be done by kids
  3. Decoration – to be made by kids
  4. Attaching the pendant – to be made by an adult

Prepare the popsicle sticks base. Below you can find the picture instructions for snowflake. At the very bottom you will find the picture of Christmas trees shape. Leave to dry for approx. 1 hour.

Now it’s time to let your kid have some fun and make a mess while painting and decorating. Regular poster paints have worked well, so you don’t have to use any professional paints. Remember to secure the area so that painting runs carefree for your the child and for you.

Leave to dry for a while.
