Preschool back to school crafts
Grab 4 popsicle sticks. Cut off the ends to make the popsicle sticks flat. This step should be done by a grown-up, so leave out this step completely since it’s not essential to the making of the craft.
Paint the popsicle sticks white on one side and let it dry.
Grab another popsicle stick and cut it into half.
Back to School Craft for Kids
Glue on the two halves of the popsicle stick along the 4 popsicle sticks at the top and the bottom to create something similar to the image shown.
Now download the template which you can find at the end of this post. Print out the template and cut it apart to create this piece as shown.
Paste this white piece of the template onto the 4 popsicle sticks (on the white painted side) to form the top part of the liquid glue craft.

Next, cut out the tip using orange construction paper. You can just color this part in as well.
Glue this tip onto the craft to create the glue’s nozzle.
First day of school crafts
Next cut out 2 thin strips using blue construction paper. Measure the width of the crafts for approximate measurements.
Glue these onto the craft at the top and the bottom as shown in the picture.
Back to school craft ideas
Cut out a strip of orange paper. Again you will need to roughly measure the width of the glue craft.
Paste the orange strip right under the top blue strip. Write the words GLUE onto the popsicle sticks.
And there you have it! A completed glue popsicle stick craft!
