Triangle Popsicle Box

Triangle+Popsicle+Box-916x1024If your students know how to make a square popsicle box, they might want to try this next. A bit more thought needs to be applied as the sticks must be laid down in a kind of spiral progression.

1. Make a triangle with three sticks, gluing them together at the ends. I prefer Alene’s craft glue, which sets pretty quickly.
2. Glue a new stick down on the side that will keep it evenly spaced from the layer below. Continue adding sticks in a spiraling fashion until it is as tall as desired. Let dry.
3. Cut sticks with a scissors or paper cutter to fill in the triangle as shown.
