This craft stick process art activity is a super fun activity for kids and a great way to use up craft sticks, lolly sticks or popsicle sticks. We have a big bag full of these fab craft materials in three different shapes and sizes and I love the way the boys decided to use them.

Craft Stick Process Art How to:
The boys really took charge with this idea and made it their own. Initially, I suggested tracing the sticks with coloured markers and colouring them in. However, they decided to trace them with pencil and get out the paints.
Take your paper and start tracing around your craft sticks.
Keep going until you have filled your page as much or as little as you like.
Take your paint and start painting the tracings of your sticks.
I love how the boys chose to colour some of the sticks wholly, bit only some of the others to give the picture depth and the impression of the sticks overlapping.
Once they had done it with paint, they decided to try it with colouring pens.
I adore how colourful these turned out.
