The summer is a great time to bust out some crafts with the kids. Whether they are spending too much time on screens, the weather is less than stellar or you just want to engage your kids with another form of creativity, crafts are an awesome way to teach your kids to explore. Beckie from Infarrantly Creative here, back to show you a fun summer kid’s craft idea. My daughter, Kayla and I decided to make a sunburst out of Popsicle sticks and the new Ultra Dye from Plaid. I just saw it hit the shelves and I decided to give it a whirl.
• Plaid Ultra Dye in various colors
• Craft sticks
• 7” Embroidery hoop
• Wood glue
• Foam brushes
• Disposable gloves
1. Make sure to protect your work area and your kid’s skin by wearing gloves and covering your table. The gloves I had for Kayla were a bit large but worked for the job.
2. With a foam brush coat each craft stick front and back with the dye. Just a thin coat is needed. Let them dry.
5. Squirt some wood glue on your hoop working a little at a time. Make sure to prop your sticks up while they are drying so they don’t slip off the hoop.
6. Once completely dry you can unscrew your embroidery hoop pin. The glue on the sticks will hold the hoop in place.
