Today's craft we used jumbo craft sticks, also known as popsicle sticks. This craft was good to work on patience for a 4 year old to wait for glue to dry. She also had to focus on lining this up so she would not have a lopsided box. Each layer of sticks are alternating which you can see in the photos. Otherwise you end up with wide spaces in the sides for things to fall out of your box. It's also pattern practice for the child making it!
