Faemom Crafts for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Kids

Posts Tagged ‘popsicle sticks

(These are really fun to make and play with.  We’ve actually done these twice.  Evan loves to play with what he makes.  Sean just likes to get messy as he makes things.  This is an easy craft, and it is not very messy.)

Things you need:

  •   Six to seven 1 in pom poms
  •   Popsicle stick
  •   Glue
  •   Black marker or goggly eyes
  •   Mini pom poms (optional)
  •   Magnet (optional)

Have the child put glue on the Popsicle stick.

Have the child mark the eyes with a marker or help the child glue the eyes.  Glue the mini pom poms on the head for antenna.  If you would like, glue a magnet on the bottom of the stick when the caterpillar is dry.

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.

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