Makerspace Challenge: Not a Stick

Not a Stick

This month’s makerspace challenge was inspired by one of my favorite picture books! I originally wanted to do Not a Box, but I didn’t have enough boxes to last for an entire monthly challenge. I did, however, have plenty of Popsicle sticks. So…

Because the makerspace is all about creativity, I left this challenge completely open. I basically pulled the book for inspiration, threw a bunch of Popsicle sticks, notched sticks, and old fashioned clothes pins into a tub, and let the kids have at it.

I honestly can’t tell you if this challenge is going over well with the kids or not. May is a bear of a month for the Children’s Department. Between some vacation days and working on SRP stuff, I feel like I haven’t really had time to pay attention to the makerspace, aside from making sure that it stays stocked.

But I will say that A LOT of the Popsicle sticks have disappeared, so they’re obviously being used for something!

  1. Would you be willing to share your makerspace signs through Google Docs? I think they are great activities! Thank you for sharing!

    • I’m glad you like them, and you are welcome to copy them yourself, but I’m against giving away work I did for free. And since I made these on work time, I’m not sure about the legality of selling them (and would rather just avoid the hassle all together). I promise you that the signs are easy to make. The font I used is Impact. The images are either clip art or from Google images.
