Who would have thought a simple, everyday craft material like craft sticks (popsicle sticks) could be so much fun & give such endless hours of play?!
It started with my recent obsession with Mandalas, well and my love for all things Gina, the creator at Willowday (a fellow Rockin’ Art Mom). She creates these AMAZEBALLS flower Mandalas on her IG feed – you have to go follow her!!
So, I was perusing my craft supplies on hand & the idea hit me!!
So many colors, so many ideas with craft sticks!! Craft Stick Mandalas!! Today I think we’re even adding beads to the mix too!
This is beyond simple, and another one of our Invitation To Create ideas!
Here are the simple materials we used – everything I already had on hand to create these Craft Stick Mandalas.
- Colored Craft Sticks
- Natural Craft Sticks
- Jumbo Colored Craft Sticks
- Jumbo Natural Craft Sticks
- Mini Natural Craft Sticks
- Pictures from here & here for inspiration
I laid out the materials for them to see, along with some pretty pictures of Mandalas for inspiration.
Imagine the possibilities! This lasted HOURS folks – I MEAN HOURS!!!
