...Wondering how to bend popsicle sticks?
"Bending popsicle sticks takes about 24 hours to accomplish. It involves boiling the sticks and then carefully wrapping them around a cup or jar and allowing them to dry completely."
- Kim Conner (Check out Kim's blog, Inspiration Made Simple, for a step-by-step tutorial on bending popsicle sticks!)

...Wondering how to glue popsicle sticks together?
"For a very sturdy option, I like to use hot glue. However, that is a harder option when working with kids. A very kid friendly option is glue dots. The bigger ones stick well, adhere quickly and they are easy to use. Other options include wood glue or basic white glue, but those do take a lot longer to dry. When using those options, it is good to glue one day and decorate the next."

...Wondering how to paint popsicle sticks?
"I always use either CraftSmart paint (it’s a Michaels brand) or Americana acrylic paint. Two coats is usually the trick to getting the great color. One coat isn’t enough and the results are streaky. You can also paint the craft sticks with one coat of white first to give them a bright base, then use one coat of color paint."
