Supplies needed:

  • 60 craft sticks (frozen treat sticks)
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Paint (blue, orange, yellow, and black)
  • Paint brushes

The Blueprints

1. Tape 8 craft sticks side by side to form a flat rectangle. Repeat for 6 rectangles.

2. Attach 2 rectangles together end to end. Repeat.

3. You and your little builder's now have 2 long rectangles (the sides) and 2 short rectangles (the front and back). Glue all the rectangles together at right angles to create a three-dimensional rectangle. Glue craft sticks along the top to form the roof. Once the glue is dry, paint everything blue.

4. Paint a 1/2" black border around each side. Paint a 1/2" x 2" black rectangle in the center of the two short sides. Paint a 1" x 4" black rectangle in the center of the two long sides. Paint an orange border around each rectangle. On one of the long sides, paint a 1" x 1" black square with an orange border next to the vertical black border.

5. Paint a 1/2" wide stripe from top to bottom of each long side, through each rectangle on those sides.

At the bottom of the stripe, paint a small yellow rectangle with black diagonal stripes going through it. Add an orange stripe under this rectangle. Draw a white "B" under the long rectangular window on the side with two windows.
