How do you cut Popsicle sticks for crafts?
You’re going to cut popsicle sticks for crafts but you’re not sure how to cut them for the craft. Well, we’ve run into this with our pet rats cage before. Since we didn’t want rough edges, we used wire cutters to cut our craft sticks to make a safe, not rough edged path or ladder for our pet rats.
If you don’t mind a rough edge, then you can use serrated scissors to cut popsicle sticks for crafts. I suggest you just use wire cutters and not let the kids get too close as you complete this adult task.
How do you harden Popsicle sticks?
During the steps of this glitter snowflake craft for kids, you’ll need to wait some time to allow the tacky glue to dry. This can be quite boring for young kids. Consider getting some of our outdoor family supplies to enjoy the backyard while your craft sticks dry.
If all else fails, you can attempt to use super glue to make sure the sticks hold hard faster than they would with tacky glue. The downside to using super glue is that your younger kids won’t be able to take part in that step of this fun Christmas snowflake craft for kids!
This is such a fun way to spend quality time together with kids of all ages. I never grow tired of making creative things using craft sticks. I hope that this glitter snowflake craft has inspired you to get crafty with some sticks, tacky glue, and glitter today!
