How to Make

  1. Take a mini plastic bucket and fill with coloured sticks, to see how many you'll need to label with activities.
  2. Once you know the number of sticks you'll be labelling, come up with a creative idea to go on each of them.
  3. Type up each idea in a contrasting colour using a computer, or hand write the ideas onto paper. Ensure the wording will fit onto the stick, and that you've left enough space between each to cut them out separately.
  4. If using a computer, print out the typed ideas. Cut each idea neatly using pattern-edged scissors to give the strips a pretty finish.
  5. Glue each idea to a lolly stick, then place all the sticks back inside the bucket. Decorate the front of the bucket with a printed or hand-written label, self-adhesive gems and a length of ribbon, tied in a knot at the front.
