Many of us aspire to, to make toys for the children with their own hands.
Strictly speaking, it’s very simple. Only need to stock up on patience to allocate free time, as well as a hundred percent, use their imagination. This toy will be a child more expensive the purchase, because he watched every step of its creation, and older children can participate, or even do it yourself according to our instructions.

It turns out something like this.

Then do the roof. To do this, glue sticks on top, wait until the glue is dry, and then paint them with white paint. That’s what we do.

Then, from the sticks, we do a kind of basis for our lodge.

It turns out a pretty white house.

Step 3. Prettification and decoration

Now it’s time to decorate our house. You can use ordinary ink: gouache or watercolor. Choose any favorite color and proceed to our work.

DIY Rainy Day Activity Sticks – Step by step

I ran across some super cute color-coded chore sticks from Embellish. Loved the idea


  • White tin jar
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Wooden craft sticks
  • Spray adhesive
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Embellishments (I used Puffies)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon
  • Alphabet stickers
  • Print out of 30+ activities

So here’s the step by step instructions…

First thing I did was spray 10 wooden craft sticks to three different colors of paper (30 sticks total) using spray adhesive.

While that was drying I started work on the tin jar. I added some ribbon to the top and bottom using my hot glue gun.

Then I used some scrap paper and the alphabet stickers to label my jar with “Rainy Daze” and added a little embellishment with a Puffie.

Now it’s time to finish the activity sticks that were set aside for drying. I used an exacto knife to trim out the straight sides and a pair of small scissors to cut the rounded edges.

I then created a Word doc of 30 activities and printed it out in a cute font. I trimmed them out and used Elmer’s glue to adhere them to the ends of the activity sticks.

Here are all of the completed activity sticks!

Pretty cute, huh? Yeah, I’m figuring we’ll use these a lot more than just rainy days. When it’s over 100 degrees here, it’s hard to do anything outside! These will work great for winter time activities as well!

Total costs: $14 at Michael’s for the craft sticks, stickers, tin jar and scrapbook paper. I already had the ribbon, but did have to repurchase some spray adhesive since I was out! That cost me another $6. Oh well, I have plenty left for future projects!
Also, here is a list of the 30 activities I used!
  • Playdoh
  • Barbies
  • Candyland
  • Chutes & Ladders
  • Glue & Tape
  • Paper Dolls
  • Baby Dolls
  • Watercolors
  • Crayons
  • Paper Bag Puppets
  • Sock Puppets
  • Paint Rocks
  • Build a Fort
  • Watch a Movie
  • Play the Piano
  • Tea Party
  • Dance
  • Play Restaurant
  • Treasure Hunt
  • Bake Something
  • Manicure/Pedicure
  • Look at Photo Albums
  • Dress Up
  • Read Nursery Rhymes
  • Indoor Picnic
  • Play Charades
  • Play School
  • Finger Painting
  • Make Paper Hats
  • Make Ornaments

How to Make a Pencil Holder with Popsicle Sticks

We suggest you try this because instead of just throw the “unnecessary” thing (empty can), you get a very desired, such as pencil holders.
We offer to make an unusual decor banks wooden sticks. We have created such a lovely pencil holders and in this master class, we want to tell you how it’s done.

Required Material:
Wooden Sticks (flat). These can be sticks for ice cream or bamboo garden labels.
Acrylic paint.
Narrow rep ribbon.
5.List porous rubber 2mm thick.
Thermal adhesive gun.
Scissors with pointed ends.

Before you begin decorating the banks, it is necessary to process the upper edge. All sharp protruding bulges need a hammer or other heavy object, or a file to file. Once the edge is processed, you can begin to work on the decor. In this master class, we used a bank, circle the walls which is 25 cm., Respectively, it took us 25 pieces of sticks, the width of 1cm.

With glue gun glue sticks to the can, one after another. Trying to glue them as close as possible to each other.

Sticks must be chosen as the curves, which may adversely affect the results of our work can be found more or less equal since some of them are,

Thus, sticks plastered all we can.

Since the bank we use, almost half below the height sticks, its inner part is almost not visible, so it does not have to decorate.

Further, all sticks painted blue acrylic paint. The paint dries quickly, covers well the wooden surface and after drying it does not stain your hands.

The next step was that we pasted jar at the top and bottom of the narrow rep ribbon. To do this, we have also used the glue gun.

Decorating element has been decided to make a flower out of foam rubber. For this paper, we have drawn template-harvest and cut it.

With a paper flower to a sheet of foam rubber, the sharp end of the scissors we circled outline. On a soft rubber surface was a clear trail that is easy to cut out the desired shape us.

According to this principle, we have prepared a sufficient number of flowers.

With hot melt glued to the wooden surface florets banks.

The middle of the flowers issued by gluing pink.

Once all the glue dries, the jar is ready for use. From it came out very nice pencil holders. Try it and you make the decor tin cans with their own hands and finally get an exclusive little thing desired.
