As a work at home mom, I have loads of experience with Busy Boxes and trying to invent new ways to keep little ones busy. My girls are teenagers now, but when they were little, we did a LOT of crafting with cardboard, scrap paper, and yes… popsicle sticks! These are great for Earth Day crafts, or any day of the year.
Popsicle stick crafts your kids will love
Part of homeschooling is making sure that it's fun but also educational. Working with popsicle sticks is great practice for fine motor skills as well as art and, of course, imagination!
Travel down to the farm with this Tractor Popsicle Stick Craft! Great way to incorporate popsicle stick crafts into a Unit Study for kids of all ages. While the little ones craft, the older ones can look up what type of careers are involved in farming.
What type of popsicle sticks should I use?
While you can use ones from actual popsicles, they're not going to be that pretty plain wood grain look some are going for. The good news? Most of these crafts call for painted popsicle sticks! So, you can upcycle. If you don't have any at home, you can grab big boxes of them on Amazon for pretty cheap.
