Our local homeschool group has a monthly gathering during the autumn/winter/spring months which we refer to as “gym day.” The primary purpose of these gym days are social, though we try to provide the children with many gross motor activities and a few crafts. One such craft for our most recent super hero themed gym day was to create our own action figures.
Simply cut the popsicle stick in half.
Then tape either half of the popsicle stick to either side of the wooden clothes peg to create arms.
Supply the assembled action figures along with some paint supplies and let the kids go to town.
If you’re doing this as a group activity, then you may want to consider making some paper boxes out of cardstock, so that the parents can easily transport the wet paint projects home without making a mess in their cars.by
