Two six inch dowel sticks

This craft requires some handyman skills. Get Mom, Dad, Granddad or any adult to participate. You've also got to start saving bottle caps, six per stick, 12 in all.
The younger the children, the more help and supervision they are going to need, this isn't a simple project, it requires manual skills.
Cut two six inch dowel sticks. Decorate.
Using a large nail, hammer holes in the centers of the bottle caps.
With ordinary nails, hammer three sets of 2 bottle caps along one side of the dowel stick. Be sure to leave enough space below for a handle.
