Using your Skill Sticks create the bed of
your wagon. We built ours three sticks
high all the way around
Using regular Popsicle sticks, create a
frame by gluing four of them together
at the corners.
After the corners dry, glue more sticks
across the middle to form a solid plank.
Then turn it over and apply glue to the
bottom two Popsicle Sticks.
Set your Wagon bed onto the glue and let
dry. If you're using a glue gun this step is
much quicker, the wood glue will take a
while to dry and you should set it
somewhere where it won't be moved.
(This is an optional step, we did to
keep our canvas up)
Using 4 Popsicle sticks, glue them
around the sides of the wagon like
Cut a long rectangle shape from your
paper bag. We used the side of the bag
and that width worked pretty well. Curve
up the edges as shown in the picture.
Glue your paper bag to your wagon. We
used wood glue, so we had to put on these
little binder clips to hold it in place while it
dried. If you have a glue gun, it would
really speed up the process here.
Using a small coffee cup, trace 4 circles onto
your cardboard. Cut them out and poke a
small hole in the center of each of them.
Insert a Popsicle Stick into each of the
wheels. You can use a glue gun around the
sides if the hold is to big and they get loose.
Glue the Popsicle sticks together to make
the axle. You'll have two sets of wheels like
Glue the axles to the bottom of your wagon.
Make sure that your front and back wheels are
sitting evenly, and make any necessary
After your wagon is complete, it's time
to fill it up with some pioneer goodies!
Make little scrap quilts and boxes, pots
and pans, or even a clay family to put
