Popsicle Stick Snowflake

popsicle+snowflake-942x1024So it’s time for my annual holiday challenge. How do you help students make a special gift for their parents that is inexpensive, non-denominational, and can be completed in two classes? This is my solution this year – popsicle snowflakes. My sample measures about 10″ across, and is made from twelve Mini and six Craft Stick Woodsies that you can buy at Michaels or JoAnns. Even if you pay retail (without any coupons) the cost is about 35¢ per student for just the sticks. Not bad. I recommend using Aleene’s Tacky Craft Glue as it sets up pretty quick and it is good practice for students. Stay tuned for step two, my spray painted sample.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Many thanks!

    Sure, I’ll try. It’s hard to work around all these spammers these days.
