After a little hiatus from crafting – We finally had time to make a project! Milo and I made a chewbacca birdhouse. Save that almond milk container and make one yourself!

You will need:
Popsicle sticks
Empty Juice or Milk container (we used an almond milk container)
Brown, White and Black Paint
Foam Paintbrush (for painting all over) and small paintbrush (for details)
Hot Glue Gun
Googly Eyes
Xacto Knife

1. Clean out your juice container and cut out a large opening in front.  Paint the inside of your birdhouse and the cap (nose) black.
2. I found my popsicle sticks were too long, so I had to snap the ends of just about all of them to get them to fit. In the smaller areas you will need to snap them in half or so.
3. Glue them to the carton using hot glue. Be careful if you have little hands helping! Milo doesnt go near the glue gun because hes scared of getting burned (as he should be!)
4. Paint your birdhouse brown. THIS was a great step for little hands.
5. When its all dry, paint the black and white details.
6. Affix the eyes with hot glue, screw the cap on, and you are good to go!
