Painting Sticks!

My kids LOVE to collect sticks on walks or in the backyard.  Usually they end up being used as some type of sword to "fight the dragons" but today...they became works of ART!  It was a fun project.

This is what we did:


  1. We collected dry sticks of all sizes.
  2. We painted the stick using acrylic paint.
  3. Big Guy and Little Guy went for quantity.  The girls went for quality!
  4. The girls added feathers using tacky glue.
The project took us about 30 minutes.  Acrylic paint will stain clothes.  Be sure to wear "play" clothes.  Little Guy was covered in paint.  The paint  washes off skin with some scrubbing.  I think we'll put the sticks in our garden.  Aren't they cute? :)
