Simple Kids Craft – Craft Stick Dolls

I’ve never witnessed Molly so engaged, bordering on fanatic, about a craft as she has been with these Craft Stick Dolls. With just popsicle sticks, washi tape and markers she has been growing her family of dolls every day this week, some mornings I would find her beavering away¬†‘first’ thing out of bed :)

It all started with the above set of moms and daughters…

and of course then they needed some pet puppies…


and birdies….

then “I” was instructed to make cats, because Molly doesn’t like cats!

and having caught the bug myself then I added pirates into the mix



This simple kids craft is a must for every home and school, with the most basic of materials children can create their own unique characters in a short space of time – and we all know how they like ‘instant gratification’.

I’m off to the craft shop now to buy more popsicle sticks :)


this craft was inspired by this, originally pinned to my Simple Kids Craft Ideas pinterest board
