Crafts for Kids—Painted Sticks


Crafts for Kids—Painted Sticks
Two sticks painted turquoise, orange, and purple in a glass vase

I love a craft that doesn’t require much in the way of materials, and this is a great one! All you need is paint – acrylic craft paints work really well – paint brushes, and sticks. As an added bonus, one of the best ways to collect interesting sticks is to go for a walk around your neighborhood!

This project is really as simple as it sounds – go for a walk, pick up some sticks, bring them home, and paint them! Here is where you can let your creativity run wild – what type of painting do you want to do? Stripes? Dots? Hearts? Painting sticks is a great craft to do with someone else, because it’s fun to see what ideas each of you has.

When your sticks are finished, try displaying them in a vase for a bouquet that won’t ever wilt. And once, you run out of sticks to paint, try moving on to rocks!
