This summer, help your kids make an entire town, from hotels to snack shops, out of ice-pop sticks. Once the designs are complete, they can invite all of their favorite toys to be part of the fun.
Complete with a roof, chimney, and window box, this stick house is a favorite among civilians.
Made of sticks laid in a grid, this boat offers smooth sailing. Pick a lucky toy to take passengers on a ride.
For the boat's bottom, glue sticks, slightly spaced (they expand in water), onto support sticks. Leave space in middle for mast to fit snugly. Glue sticks across top (cut away part of middle stick to make room for mast).
For mast, overlap two red sticks; glue. Cut newspaper into a sail and stamp on name; cut slits in sail. Put sail on boat.
