Friendship Sticks
Total Time 1 hour Ages school-age

These vibrant sticks are banded with six colors, one for each letter in the word friend. At a recent camp for seven- to 13-year-old girls, the campers made these trinkets for one another and wore them around their necks as a token of their camp-forged bonds.

What you'll need

  • Square wooden chopsticks
  • Wire snips or sturdy scissors
  • Acrylic paint, 6 colors
  • Cotton swabs
  • Fine-point permanent marker
  • Cord or string

How to make it

  1. To make one, cut a 3-inch-long section from a chopstick. Use cotton swabs to paint 6 different-color stripes around the stick.

  2. Let the paint dry, then write a message on the stick with the marker. Tie a length of cord tightly around the top of the stick and give it to your friend.
