It’s hot! Summer is here and some days are just down right scorching. My kids love cooling off on a hot summer day with a popsicle! Popsicles bring back so many fun childhood memories for me. We decided to bring the chilly refreshing popsicle fun indoors and make an adorable Popsicle Garland Craft. My kids love crafting so this activity was right up their alley and they had a blast decorating their own popsicles to hang up in their rooms. Toddlers on up to older elementary children will love individualizing these popsicle crafts for kids. These popsicle crafts can be used as wall decor or for pretend ice cream stand games or you can even string them together for a summery popsicle garland.
Popsicle Crafts For Kids Tutorial
Popsicle Crafts Supplies Needed:
- Construction Paper
- Crayons/Glitter Glue
- Popsicle Sticks or Plastic Knives
How To Make Popsicle Craft:
Gather your supplies and spread out on the floor or at your kitchen table.
Start with your construction paper and your pen/pencil. Draw out your popsicles on your construction paper. We made our popsicles about 5″ tall.
If your child is good with scissors, let him or her cut out the popsicles. If they’re a little too young, go ahead and help them out by cutting the popsicles out!
Here comes the fun! Let your child pick out their favorite color popsicles and grab the crayons and colored glue to decorate with. The glitter glue that we have is really fun and just adds a little something to craft projects. If your child prefers markers over crayons, those will work great too.
Your child can decorate their popsicles however they like! We drew spirals, stripes and even some sprinkles!
Once the drawing and gluing is done, it’s time for the popsicle sticks. I never seem to have popsicle sticks in my crafting box but I always have plastic utensils! So plastic knives work well for the stick if you don’t actually have popsicles sticks! Help your child tape the sticks onto the back of his/her popsicle crafts. Now if you’d like to make it into a popsicle garland craft, all that’s left is taping them to a string!
