How to Make a Popsicle Stick Chain Reaction {MNM's Make}

We were inspired this week by a post over at All For The Boys showing a popsicle stick chain reaction.

I thought to myself, now here's something we could easily do - us with 1,000 popsicle sticks sitting in the cupboard  - don't ask, it was way cheaper to buy them in bulk!

What I didn't quite appreciate was that the popsicle sticks used in this cool trick were a lot bendier and fatter than your average popsicle stick.

So after a few goes and getting quite frustrated when they just wouldn't work - the sticks were too thin, small and inflexible, I suddenly remembered we had some bigger coloured craft sticks in the cupboard.

And then we were away laughing!

It was rather hard to actually catch the popsicles in action, so I ended up having to make it about half a dozen times just to catch a good photo!



And so you can see exactly what it looks like, here's ours in real-life action!



And if you could find yourself enough popsicle sticks and had the patience and time on your hands, just look at the fun you could have!
