Stir Up Some Crafty Fun

We’re stirring things up at our house by making our very own snazzy swizzle sticks. If you are anything like me, you’re guilty of a few too many trips to the local coffee shop and you always seem to have extra wooden stir sticks in the kitchen drawer. Here’s a simple craft you can do with your kids to repurpose those plain wooden sticks into sweet summer stirrers.

Just grab some construction paper, scissors, glue, a hole puncher, and any miscellaneous craft supplies from around the house and you’ll be spicing up stir sticks (not to mention your favorite summer refreshment) in no time. Our little one decided she wanted a ladybug (of course) and I decided I wanted a tropical pineapple.


Whether you’re hosting a summer BBQ or just relaxing by the pool, these sassy swizzlers are sure to bring smiles to any occasion (and boy do they make this yummy lemonade taste even sweeter).
