Pen Holder Father's Day Craft for Kids

 

What You Will Need:

  • Craft sticks (about 35 – 40 at least)
  • Paints of different colors + paint brush
  • A pair of scissors
  • Glue
  • A piece of sponge or foam or anything else that could serve as the base of the pen holder

 

Directions:

  1. The first step is to decide what colors you’d like to use! We zeroed in on a nice bright red, and white
  2.  

  3. Line up your craft sticks. You will need 6 craft sticks per side. Paint half the sticks red and the other half white. We got a little carried away with our creativity and added nice little red spots on white sticks and white dots on the red sticks.

  7. To glue the sticks together, take one set of 6 craft sticks (alternating the white and red sticks) and line them up. Take another craft stick and stick it horizontally across the back of all 6 crafts sticks. (You can cut the extra bits of this craft stick after gluing on the sticks).
