I am always on the lookout for fun and easy kids activities, so when I saw these little people-shaped craft sticks on Amazon, I decided to get them to add to my emergency craft supplies stash. I have a drawer in my room where I store things like this that I can pull out on a rainy day when I need a break, and I try to keep something in my bag for the kids to do while we’re out.
I threw a bunch of these (enough for each child to decorate two, plus a few extras in case we were around friends who also needed something to do) in a zip lock bag in my purse along with a box of crayons, where they stayed until we were out and I needed the kids to sit and wait quietly. They were thrilled to find this activity, and I loved seeing how they decorated their sticks! Lily has always had a very unique artistic style, and that shows up with her two guys on the left. Johnny drew Batman and a villain for Batman to vanquish. Batman gets a front and a back, but the villain has two faces. Lily and Emma drew different people on the different sides of their sticks.
The best part of this activity is that, once decorated, they continued to play quietly with their little people. I love crafts that double as toys!
