You will need:

A tall glass
A mug
Ice cream sticks
An awl
Twine or any other rope
A pair of scissors
Colored duct tape or colored paper
Soak the ice cream sticks up in a glass of water. In a few days, take the sticks out of the water and carefully shape them. Bend them slowly, otherwise they will break. Place shaped bracelets into a mug. When the sticks are completely dry, decorate them with duct tape or colored paper. Make a hole on each end of a stick, and connect two sides of the bracelet with a piece of twine.

3. Make rainbow toast.

You will need:

Thick paper
A straw
Duct tape
A pair of scissors
Cut out 3 strips of paper — 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide and 5 inches (13 cm) long. Tape two strings together and make a big circle out of the new string. Create another circle out of the third paper strip. Attach these circles to the ends of the straw (how it’s shown on the image). This kind of plane flies much better than a regular paper plane.

7. Rainbow bubble snakes.
