How We Did It

Stick Bugs

Collect short, thin sticks to make your stick bugs with. Cut your pipe cleaners into thirds or halves. We used purple pipe cleaners, but grey or brown would work just as well and seem more natural.

Stick Bugs

Bend the pipe cleaner down over the stick. Twist it tightly 3 times to secure it. Bend the bottom edges up to represent the bug's feet.

Stick Bugs
Experiment with camouflage as you hide your bugs around the yard and challenge your friends to find them.
Stick Bugs
Pretend with your stick bugs in the sand box or the garden.
