Here’s how to create a Craft Stick Bucket List:
Gather all supplies.
Basecoat at least twelve wooden craft sticks with a variety of Winter inspired colors. We selected an icy mix of blues, lavenders, white and grey that we had on hand. Don’t forget that you can create pastels with bright colors and white! Let dry and then apply a second coat, if necessary. Because these sticks will be seen from both sides, flip over and paint the backs of the craft sticks.
Using a pencil and then the MONOTWIN Permanent Marker, write a Winter Bucket List activity on each of the twelve craft sticks. Get the kiddos involved to create your list! You can also use the back of each craft stick to add more activities.
Here is a detailed photo of all twelve Winter Bucket List activities.
Using the light and medium blue washable markers, create a plaid pattern on the white shipping tag by drawing grids. Write WINTER BUCKET LIST on the tag with a permanent black marker. Cut an 8-inch length of blue ribbon, loop through shipping tag and tie to the handle of the metal bucket. Accent with a snowflake cut out. Measure and cut a length of blue ribbon to wrap around the circumference of the metal bucket, and then attach with the glue gun.
Add the white paper shred to the bucket and then insert the Winter Bucket List craft sticks. Remove each stick as the family completes the activity. Add dates to the craft sticks and incorporate them into journal entries or scrapbook pages for added fun!
Create this Craft Stick Winter Bucket List in just about 30 minutes with coloring, painting and printing help from the kiddos!
Let each family member add a few of their favorites OR create a list of brand new activities. The possibilities are endless!
