How to make a popsicle stick s'mores craft!
- Gather all supplies. Measure and cut three (3) jumbo craft sticks to five inches long, trimming the rounded ends with scissors.
2. Basecoat the three trimmed jumbo craft sticks with white acrylic craft paint, these will become the marshmallow. Let dry, and apply a second coat, if necessary.
3. Basecoat two jumbo craft sticks with tan acrylic craft paint, these will become the graham crackers. Let dry, and apply a second coat, if necessary.
You can use washable markers, crayons, or even colored pencils to color the jumbo craft sticks.
4. Once dry, flip over the craft sticks on your work surface. Dry fit them with the three white craft sticks in the center and a tan craft stick on the top and the bottom. Assemble the craft stick s’more together by cutting down additional jumbo craft sticks and attaching them to the back with a glue gun and glue sticks.
5. Draw a melted chocolate pattern on a piece of paper and trace the melted chocolate onto brown craft foam with a pencil and cut it out with scissors.
Attach to the s’mores between the top graham cracker and the marshmallow with a glue gun and glue sticks.
6. Attach two large wiggle eyes to the marshmallow just under the melted chocolate using a glue gun and glue sticks. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
7. Create cheeks by dipping a new pencil eraser into pink acrylic craft paint and stamping on either side of the s’mores marshmallow face.
