"Each popscicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc...}. When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say "man, our brains need to take a break...lets do a brain break." Then I randomly select a popsicle stick and we do the activity together. The kids absolutely go NUTS for these fun little activities. None last longer than a minute and it's a great way to get them focused!" Have to remember this one!
