Spirit Sticks in a Flash! More Game Day FUN!

By Jamie Twarogowski, Macaroni Kid Publisher February 4, 2016
Celebrating the Big Game this weekend? Everyone at your Party will need Spirit Sticks! These are so simple to make, you can knock plenty out in NO TIME! A perfect activity to keep the kids busy while waiting for the festivities to start.

What You Need:
  • Plastic table cloths in your favorite team colors
  • Craft sticks/pipe cleaners
  • straws
  • Duck Tape
  • Scissors

What You Do:

1. Cut the table cloths into 1" strips. (I use a rotary blade, but scissors will work just fine. If you have ever found me at a local event, we are most likely using these strips for dance ribbons or some other craft. The rotary blade saves a lot of time!)

2. Place a handful of strips in the center of a pipe cleaner. Twist until nice and tight.

3. Cut your straws in half.

4. Put the pipe cleaner ends inside your straw, pull from the opposite end and twist over the end to secure. 

5. Wrap the straw and exposed pipe cleaner with Duck Tape and there you have your Spirit Stick!

Now your Cheerleaders can cheer your team on to V-I-C-T-O-R-Y!
