It’s not often we find time for crafts during homeschooling, but today I made a promise to Joseph and Catherine that we would do something fun with popsicle sticks. I’m so glad we did, because these were VERY easy but enjoyable projects!
To make our scrap snowmen, we cut out black hats from spare bits of colored paper, made scarves from old fabric remnants and glued everything (including buttons from my sewing bag) onto old popsicle sticks (washed and dried first). I drew the faces for them and then we made a winter scene on white paper for the happy couple to pose in front of.
Our next activity: bookmarks. We used colored foam popsicle sticks and puffy fish stickers from Catherine’s collection. The rounded shapes are pieces of wood. Catherine and Joseph each colored their circles; for my fish I just cut out a black piece of construction paper in a jagged shape. These aren’t just cute and colorful; they really do make great bookmarks because the foam is thin and kind of pliable, so they lie very nicely between the pages of a book:
What kinds of crafts do you enjoy with your children?
Thanks to Momtrusted for sending us the popsicle sticks and round wooden cutouts!
