My boys and I had our first go at wands today. Top is mine red one is Dylans age 5, 3rd is Dawsons age 11 and the bottom is an extra we tried everything first on. We all had a blast on a rainy day and the boys did all their own painting. Thanks for a great project were all lookin forward to starting some more from your great site.

Going to have to figure out how to make wands that are a bit more sturdy the red one is already all bent up and has tape in a couple spots.

You could put a chop stick down inside it but then it would be dangerous for little kids. Why not roll up another bit of paper, even tighter than the first bit and stuff that down inside with some white glue. That makes it really solid and yet it's not dangerous.

You've really got the wand making bug now. I like the improvements.
