Popsicle Stick House

Popsicle Stick House

Introduction


The basic house is complete with a roof, windows, a
chimney. By adding more support sticks, kids can make houses into snack
shops — every stick village needs one. With a city of sticks, kids and
their toy animals will never be bored.

Materials


  • Popsicle sticks (craft sticks)
  • Wood glue
  • Toothpicks
  • Beads
  • Paper
  • Ribbon

Steps


  1. Step 1

    Lay
    sticks side by side; leave gaps or use half-sticks to make space for
    windows and doors. On two opposing walls (shown top and bottom), join
    sticks by gluing support sticks across ends; these provide a surface for
    gluing to adjacent walls. Glue center supports on remaining walls and
    where you will have windows.  

  2. Step 2

    Glue together half-sticks and whole sticks; use toothpicks for panes.  

  3. Step 3

    Lay out half-sticks; glue on a diagonal support stick and bead doorknob. Glue stacked half-sticks together to make doorstep.  

  4. Step 4

    Glue
    one cut-off stick perpendicular to another (add clay inside; flowers
    are beads and paper leaves on cut-off toothpicks). Glue windows and
    window box to walls. For hinge, glue ribbon to door and door frame. Glue
    walls together.

  5. Step 5

    For
    sides, lay out two rows of sticks, each as wide as the house; glue on
    center supports. Glue together two A-frames. For chimney, cut two wide
    craft sticks into shapes as shown; glue together at sides. Glue edge of
    one roof side to the flat side of one A-frame; glue other roof side to
    same frame. Glue on second A-frame. Glue on chimney. Set roof on house.

  6. Step 6

    For extra-long roofs and walls, such as the ones pictured on the ice-pop stand, just add more support sticks.

  7. Step 7

    Lay
    out a row of sticks. Across top and bottom edges, glue single rows of
    supports; they will not quite meet in the middle. To each row, add
    another support stick to connect the sticks at the middle.  

  8. Step 8

    Lay together smaller walls that have support sticks on sides; glue on half-sticks at center to join them together.
