Have your child paint a batch of ice-pop sticks. When they've dried, help her assemble them into these vessels using craft glue.

What You'll Need: Paint, paintbrushes, ice-pop sticks, craft glue

Make It:

1. Paint ice-pop sticks in as many colors as desired.

2. Arrange three ice-pop sticks as shown in picture; place a dot of glue at the end of each stick.

3. Lay three more ice-pop sticks on top of the first three to create a hexagon.

4. Repeat until you reach desired bowl height.

5. To make the base, place the next layer of ice-pop sticks slightly inside the previous layers, so that each subsequent layer is closer to the center.

6. When your opening is small enough for a stick to fit across horizontally, complete the base with sticks placed side by side.
