The only materials needed for this craft activity are:
12 popsicle sticks per student/child
Some kind of ribbon
Hot glue gun
We started with laying 10 Popsicles ticks neatly under each other. Then we put glue on the remaining two and glues them across all the others to make them stay together. Then we attached a piece of ribbon to the two popsicle sticks sticking out.
When everything had time to dry properly, it was time to decorate it. I printed a few quotes for those that were uninspired on that day, but they were free to put on it whatever they wanted.
Here are some examples of what they chose and created.
