- Mini Popsicle Sticks (two per craft)
- School Glue
- Craft Paint/Paint Brushes (optional)
- Colored Cardstock

- First things first – assemble the base of the popsicle stick castle. You will want to lay your three jumbo popsicle sticks next to each other and secure them with glue, with the two mini popsicle sticks across, just like a small fence. Set aside to let it dry.
- Next up – the cardstock. Cut out a triangle top for the castle, as well as a large window, door and circular face for Rapunzel.
- Once the popsicle stick shape is dry enough, go ahead and glue your cardstock pieces in place on the wood shape.
- Next, add the wiggle eyes to the cardstock Rapunzel head, so she can see. Go ahead and also draw on some facial embellishments with the markers.
- Finally – take about three long yellow strands of tie them together for Rapunzel’s golden hair. Glue it to your castle piece to finish it off!
- Set it all aside to let it dry completely. Then display proudly for ALL to see!!
