This was a quick creation I came up with for a student who loves cars. I had lots of clear plastic CD’s and decided to use them for wheels, the gold rubber band came from a cake box and we had lots of them. The body is cardboard and popsicle sticks and the axles are pencils in straws. They go really well on a flat surface and we raced them across his room.

The rubber band powered car showing the clear cd's

As you know we love making things and I especially enjoy teaching students how to be creative. These students had great fun making this simple but practical pencil holder. Crafts are an effective way to teach English in the classroom.

This is another lovely popsicle kit made in Taiwan. I made it during the summer vacation and it looks beautiful. These kits are very cheap and well worth getting into the world of crafts. You can buy them in Taiwan from this website. Popsicle stick kits

Another semester has ended and I thought I would share this little project with you. I began with the popsicle frame because this gave me the artwork size. Then I printed the children’s names and cut the paper to fit the frame. The children loved working with sand, but you must do this project outside. I collected all the sand which was on the table and used it for the outer frame of the picture. The students really enjoyed being outside and creating this simple project.

a simple but lovely project for students, and it's all natural

I have made this popsicle money box with all my students and all of them were so overjoyed when they had finished. It really is a lovely thing and to make one yourself is a great achievement. The original can be bought as a kit in every stationary shop in Taiwan, but I bought packs of popsicle sticks and cut them myself for each student. Take a look at the original kit that Lee-Kuo made earlier on this blog, or have a look at the original kit from Big3 in Taiwan. Original kit here

I designed this CD rack for my students. It’s made entirely from popsicle sticks. You will need a special 15 mm thick stick if you wish to make one. After the first design for my students I designed the special curved rack for my 10 CD music collection. They look great!!! and are very easy to make.
