Chinese New Year - Chinese Hair Sticks

For this activity, the primary president asked me to use up all the extra chopsticks left over from a Scout function. I figured with a little sanding and paint, they'd make fun hair sticks. Most of the girls have long hair, or their mom does. I had to make sure to look them over before taking them to Activity Days because they have a tendency to splinter. So, hubby and I examined and sanded a couple dozen pairs.

I also brought some paint, paper plates to put dollops of paint on, cups for rinse water and some fine point paint brushes.

The girls had a fun time painting the hair sticks and some of the girls even wore them to church the following Sunday!
