Popsicle Stick Crafts

Popsicle stick crafts are a favourite with our son at the moment - whether it is making a picture frame or a catapult, he loves using the wooden sticks. Have a look at our step-by-step instructions.

Popsicle stick picture frame

Time needed:

15 minutes

What you need:

  • 4 popsicle sticks
  • glue
  • things to decorate your frames

1. Make a layout so that you know where to glue them together.

2. Put a drop of glue onto the corners and carefully place the sticks.

3. Let the glue dry.

4. Now you are ready to decorate the frames as you like.

5. Add a picture after it has all dried.


This simple but lovely craft idea makes a great gift for father's day or any other occasion. They are quick and easy to make and look lovely.

You could add a little picture frame hook or a magnet to the back to hang it on your wall, too.

Popsicle stick catapult

A popsicle stick catapult is a great craft activity that is a lot of fun - my husband and son really enjoyed assembling it together and then launched a lot of little, soft balls at me!

You can find detailed step-by-step instructions here! We hope you will enjoy it as much as we did!
