Fun with craft sticks

Assalaamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu

I wanted to share a cute activity using craft sticks. I saw it online (Searched for it but can’t find it now.) and it was pretty easy to do once I got my stash of craft sticks. There are so many ideas with crafts sticks 🙂 I have a few in the pipeline 🙂

You will need:


  • Pick number card
  • Choose that number of craft sticks
  • Create a design/pattern
  • Choose same colour pencils as the craft sticks
  • Draw the design/pattern on a piece of paper

Imaan wrote the number after she completed drawing the design.

The girls both enjoyed it, I helped Zahra(3) choose lower numbers as reproducing the design was harder the larger the number.

All in all great activity to have on the shelves. I love finding things that they can do together 🙂

I hope you find benefit in it too insha Allah.

    I may have to try with my little one’s lovely idea! Sis Umm An- Nu’man has a version using craft sticks too!
    I better try it out- I have tons of craft sticks 😉

    • Wa alaikum Salaam 🙂

      Yes i have seen Umm An-Nu’man’s version masha Allah, I def want to try it insha Allah. I just don’t have a glue gun which I imagine you would need to fix the sandpaper to the craft sticks. I simply love craft sticks, there are so many things you can do with them, check out some idea’s on Pintrest. I only got mine recently so still workin’ on it 🙂

    Glad you are back was missing your post. Hope and pray you are well Insha Allaah! Great Idea I am sure Maimoonah would love it too. I wonder where could I get craft sticks from over here. Does it have any other name? Is it like popsicle sticks? Sorry for being dumb lol!

    I have missed your posts too ukhti, I pray you and family are well Insha Allah. Alhamdulillah we are all well 🙂

    I bet your heart is yearning to be back in the Haram hey, having been there so recently? Insha Allah we will be able to perform Hajj soon.

    Yes craft sticks are popsicle sticks LOL 🙂
    Its a really fun activity, hope she enjoys it insha Allah.
