Popsicle stick house tutorial- how to build a Popsicle house

Okay! So here I come with my latest experiment with Popsicle sticks. In this popsicle stick house tutorial, you will learn all the basic tricks to make the walls, windows, fence, and stairs to build a beautiful little craft house.

I would say, making this craft is a fantastic boredom buster for teenagers, tweens, and adults! This is also something parents and kids can do together. The kids can draw a plan of the house beforehand which will help them calculate the number of walls and windows needed. Decide the height and width and stack the popsicle sticks accordingly. This is a fun STEM project to develop the engineering and math skills of kids.

This popsicle house is a fun summer project for tweens and teens. For more summer craft ideas, be sure to check out our huge collection of fun summer crafts for kids. 

For my popsicle stick house, I used approximately 250 popsicle sticks and a lot of glue. (I need to visit the craft shop soon to buy my next set of glue sticks!) I strongly recommend the use of a wood glue instead of hot glue if kids are trying this.
