This is a fun way to turn Popsicle sticks into a puzzle. I've made a love themed one, but you can paint whatever you'd like on it. Taking a photo of it creates a key for the puzzle player to follow. You can have this on a mobile device, or you can print it out.


  • Popsicle sticks
  • tape
  • pencil
  • acrylic paint
  • paintbrushes


  1. Lay out your popsicle sticks side by side. I used coloured sticks and put them in double rainbow order.
