100th Day Of School Family Project

Last week my son brought this paper from their class about this family project that we will be doing for their 100th day of school. The idea is for the students to find an object and use 100 of it to make some kind of creation. So I decided to use a popsicle/craft sticks to make a cute basket. I've made it before so that was easy for me and my son to work on it. All we needed were the popsicle sticks and glue. I got lucky that I still had popsicle sticks leftover from the last time I made some which was over 5 years ago!

Anyhow, my son and I made the basket yesterday and seemed like he enjoyed making it. This is what the basket looks like below but it is not the actual one that we made yesterday. The one in the pictures below I only assembled to make sure that the 100 mini-sticks will be enough to make one, so I didn't glue it..

Anyway, the idea of this basket is NOT MINE! I found the picture online over 5 years ago, I think on Ebay if I am not mistaken. I just looked at the picture and figured out myself on how to make it. It was kind of hard at first but then it gets easy once you get the hang of it. You can also use regular size popsicle sticks which you can buy both the mini and regular sizes at Walmart at the craft section. I made the regular size before and I still have it using it to hold my shells that I brought from the Philippines. You can use this basket to hold just about anything, as long as it will fit in it and light enough not to break it! Next time, I will post the step by step on how to make this adorable basket!
