I probably shouldn’t be telling on my husband here, but during a particularly long phone call this past week, he became somewhat disenchanted. So he picked up a bag of Skill Sticks that the kind folks over at CraftProjectIdeas.com sent me and started messing around. The result was this huge Skill Stick Barn. He was tickled pink with himself and even continued to work on it after the phone call was over. And then he asked me to buy him some more! Haha! Anyway, I thought I would share his creation with you today.
My husband is very handy around the house, but I never knew that he was “crafty.” Apparently, I just haven’t been offering him the right kind of crafting supplies!
CraftProjectIdeas.com sends me a box of crafting goodies every now and again. When the Skill Sticks showed up in this month’s box, I have to admit that I wasn’t quite sure what to do with them. But the hubby knew right away what to create!
If you are looking for a craft idea for an older boy, especially those who think they are “too cool” for crafts, these Skill Sticks may be a great way to get them involved. I think they may appeal to one’s engineering and analytical side. Unlike traditional craft sticks that are only flat, skill sticks have grooves in them that allow the crafter to fit them together to create a project.
What would you or your little one create with Skill Sticks? If you have a project that you have made with them, post it to my blog Facebook page. I would love to see it and to give the hubby more inspiration for his future Skill Stick projects! Happy crafting!
