We are adding another farm animal to our collection, a horse craft. And, it starts with just a few basic popsicle sticks. Your horse does not have to look like mine. The only limit is your imagination. It could be a white stallion or black with white spots or pink with a white mane! Make it your own. And then make him some friends: ROOSTER, COW, PIG, SHEEP.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR HORSE CRAFT
Step 1: Build a Triangle Frame
- Glue together 3 large popsicle sticks into a triangle frame shape using Elmer’s glue
- Allow the glue to dry thoroughly
- *You may want to prepare several triangle frames at once so that they are ready for other projects. Just keep them in your craft bag.
Step 2: Paint the Frame
- Place the triangle frame on the newspaper
- Pinch the pompom with the clothespin to form a “paint brush”
- Squeeze a little brown paint onto the newspaper and paint the triangle frame
- Set aside and allow the paint to dry
Step 3: Put It Together
- Use the printable template to cut a triangle out of brown construction paper
- Once the paint is dry, attach the cut out triangle to the back of the popsicle stick triangle frame using your glue stick.
Step 4: Use the Horse Craft Template
- Cut the pieces out using the printable horse template
Step 5: Finish Your Farm Animal Craft
- Put all of the pieces in place using your glue stick
- Place the googly eye
- Cut little pieces of white yarn, approximately 3-4 inches long and tape onto the back of the horse along his neck for his mane
- Trim the yarn to the desired length…a great cutting activity for little ones learning how to snip
