    Striped Roof Cottage:

    The trick is simply to line up the popsicle sticks and add a couple horizontal sticks in the back to keep them together. That way you don’t have to actually glue all those sticks along the thin connections. Such a time saver!

    We used a small pairing knife to break the popsicle sticks and a toothpick and strips of fabric for the curtains.

    Row boat and oars:

    Bending the popsicle sticks took a little practice. You had to bend them just enough, but not too much that they’ll snap! Once they’re bent they stay that way. We added two popsicle sticks underneath for the bottom of the boat and toothpicks with washi tape for the oars.

    Airplanes:

    These were the simplest of all! Henry had a great time creating and decorating his own ‘fleet’. Simple glue two popsicle sticks to the top of a clothespin. Use washi tape, markers, or paint to decorate your planes.

    Henry insisted afterwards that the pathway to the lake needed a bench. He’s been home this week with strep throat so I’ve had a little assistant shadowing me:
