Popsicle Picture Frames

Posted on: May 4, 2009

Picture Frame

(I wanted to have the boys paint a picture frame like they did for their Daddy, and I thought about making the whole frame.  The boys loved painting and decorating their frames.  I’m still trying to get them to add stickers, but no go yet.)

Things you need:

  • Popsicles sticks
  • Glue
  • Smock
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Optional: glitter pens, glitter, stickers, buttons, anything you want to decorate with

If you have wide popsicle sticks, use two for each side of the frame.  If you have thin popsicle sticks, use three for each side.  Create a square with the popsicle sticks, overlapping two sides.  Glue the sticks together at the overlapping of the sticks.

Allow the glue to dry.  Have the child paint the frame.

When the frame is day, have the child decorate the frame more if s/he would like.

Oh my god, the patience, the mess, the love, the memories they will have of their mother letting them do this. Treasure it.

Thanks, insider. I have a lot of fun with them doing this. Though I was a lot less stressed over mess before we moved into a rental 😉
