This cute summer camp craft works well indoors, too -- any time of year.

Small stick with a branch on either side.
A parent should cut the stick a inch above and below the branches, then trim the branches to a few inches.
Draw a friendly face on paper (we made a puppy), and cut out around your drawing; glue it to the top of the stick. Try to balance the stick on your finger; keep trimming the branches until it stays in place.
