Hi this is Stacy and in this video I will show you how to make a castle out of Popsicle sticks. The materials are Popsicle sticks, tape or glue. We are going to start by making the sides and the back of our castle. We are going to start by gathering 10 Popsicle sticks and putting them together and then you are either going to tape or glue them together. Then you're going to flip it over and tape the back. Now we are going to put Popsicle sticks going across. You'll want to make sure that they are evenly spaced and start with putting them on the ends and making your way towards the middle. After you have placed them in the spot you want, then you need to tape them. Now you need to make sure that you make 3 sides that all look the same. Next we are going to make the front of the castle and it will have a drawbridge. Now you will need 9 Popsicle sticks and you're going to break them into different sections. You'll have a small piece, a longer piece and another small piece. Now we are going to tape 9 shorter pieces onto 2 full sized Popsicle sticks going the other way. Now you are going to use a full Popsicle stick and lay it across. Now you are going to tape it together. Now you can tape the 3 sides together and make sure you leave a little bit of room between them and you can tape your last side. Now you can stand up your castle and tape the last two sides together. Now you will use the remaining 9 bigger pieces that were cut and tape them onto 2 bigger Popsicle sticks for your drawbridge. Now turn your castle upside down and you're going to tape a Popsicle stick across the entrance. Now we are going to tape our drawbridge onto the piece that we just added. Now that your Popsicle stick castle is complete, you can decorate it.
