Lollipop Stick Project

Do you work in an office?

Are you looking out the window right now?

Can you see the sun bouncing off the shimmering windows of the office block across the street where an entire floor of people can be seen happily munching away on ice pops bought by some good natured colleague?

Do you wish that was you?

Well why not take that leap and be that good natured colleague, eager to please their co-workers - but more importantly wouldn't it just be great to have an ice pop right now.

Over the course of the summer, various staff members will take it upon themselves to go buy the treats and this normally works on a 'who's turn is it now?' type rotation.

There are 2 ways you can go about this.

Option 1. You go around the room and make a list of who wants what.
2 x Brunch, 1 x Mint Chocolate Feast, 1 x Wibbly Wobbly Wonder, 2 x Cornetto (one chocolate, one strawberry), 3 x Almond Magnum, 2 x Loop the Loop, 1 x Choc Ice and on and on and on...
(The problem with this is there's a very slim hope of finding all those ice pops in the one shop.
Therefore, multiple shops, longer journey, melting ice pops and nobody wants that.)

Option 2. Everybody gets the same.

Either way you are left with a big old pile of lollipop sticks.
Now, if you grew up in the 70's like me then you were surrounded by the likes of this and one look at it will either stimulate your nostalgic synapses or send you screaming away from your computer screen and into the nearest dark corner to cry.

But fear not. This is not about lollipop stick bowls or houses. There's no lollipop stick bridges or chairs to be built here. This is about War!

War against the Zombies. Or so I keep getting told!
Apparently it's inevitable that we are going to be attacked by Zombies. It's only a matter of time!
So until then - get some practice in.

Having watched the video you can see that all you need are your lollipop sticks and a few office supplies.
Elastic bands, bull clips, plastic spoon, sellotape...all of which can be found around the office.

As for the pegs...well, you're off to the shops to buy ice pops anyway - you might as well pick up some pegs too!
