Popsicle Stick Lizard Craft

Pin It

Here's a cute lizard craft made from 2 Popsicle sticks or craft sticks and some pipe cleaners. You can change the color scheme as you like.

Materials:

  • Popsicle sticks or colored craft sticks(You can pint them yourself or buy colored ones)
  • glue
  • tape
  • scissors
  • pipe cleaners
  • google eyes
  • black marker

Directions:

  1. Cut two, 2 inch lengths of pipe cleaner to make the legs. Cut four, 1 inch lengths. Wrap the 1 inch piece around the end of the leg piece and twist once. Flatten out to make 3 toes. Repeat on the other end. It helps to make a lot of legs in advance before doing the craft in class.
  2. Cut a 3-4 inch piece for the tail and add a curl.
  3. Generously glue the leg and tail pieces to one of your colored craft sticks.
  4. Sandwich another stick on top. Push down and allow to dry. You could also substitute tape to cut down on time.
  5. Take a marker and decorate the top to look like scaly skin.
  6. Glue on 2 google eyes.
