Popsicle Stick Tree Hotel
High up on a branch, a tree hotel made of popsicle sticks is the perfect structure to add to your stick village.
Glue sticks to opposite ends of cotton fabric; glue a loop of string to one stick.
Lay out nine sticks. Cut away two sticks on one end to leave a gap that fits snugly around branch. Glue support sticks across, leaving room at the end with the gap for a final stick to be glued on later.
To erect tree house, put modeling clay in pail, insert branch in clay, and cover with rocks. Slide floor onto branch; glue on final stick to secure snugly on other side. Add a cut-off stick underneath to brace. Hook roof's string onto a twig; glue the other end to the edge of the floor.
To make swing, knot one end of two pieces of string; sandwich strings between two cut-off sticks; glue supports underneath. To make ladder, glue cut-up sticks to two pieces of string; glue to platform.
