Barnyard Kids’ Craft: Triangle Horse

Drum roll please…and the final popsicle stick barnyard character is this friendly horse kids craft! And, as always, use your imagination. Your horse does not have to look like mine. 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.
