Start by laying out your popsicle sticks on your paper in the order of the tree you wish to create, making a template. (As you get near the top of the tree, you may have to cut your sticks with scissors to achieve your desired shape). Once the layout is complete - trace a pencil outline around the tree shape created. This outline shape is a guideline to help your child lay out the sticks. After outline is created, remove sticks from paper.
