The only supplies that you need are large size popsicle sticks. Then let the building and the fun begin.
This is also called Cobra Weaving because when the sticks start to explode, the chain reaction looks a little bit like a snake. Our campers even added a fun cobra's head to the end of their popsicle stick chain.
The weaving can be a little bit challenging in the beginning, but if you can stick with it for 10 to 15 minutes you will be able to master it. It really is easier to do with two people at first.
Here is a video of the exploding sticks in action!

Popsicle Stick Bombs are another fun way to use your popsicle sticks. And they are even easier to build than a cobra weave. Check out this tutorial.

Looking for more ways to use the big box of popsicle sticks? (We bought ours at Walmart for about $4.00.)
Here are some other fun ideas:
Popsicle Stick Frames
Popsicle Stick Vase
Popsicle Stick Puppets

Popsicle Sticks are such a versatile craft supply with almost unlimited uses. I remember as I kid we would eat our popsicles and then wash off the sticks and save them in an empty ice cream bucket so we could use them for projects later. I love that you can now buy clean, non-licked sticks just for fun! Pin It
