popcicle sticks with velcro to make letters, numbers, shapes, and more.
Ideas for the kids
Teaching shapes using popsicle sticks.....number represent the number of each shape's sides (ie: square has 4 sides)
Color matching popsicles play - how cute!
Moonsand = 8 cups flour + 1 cup baby oil.... I make this for the kids all the time and they love it!
To do with kids
Free set of 12 printable popsicle stick puzzles/pattern sheets for pre-school workbox
Marble Races with a cheap pool noodle (kids would be occupied for hours.)
Cut up pipe-cleaners and place them in a bottle. Use a magnet to manipulate them. Kids will stay busy for hours! My boys love magnets
A simply DIY game, able to be differentiated- can identify letter to keep stick, can identify sound to keep stick, or can find upper-lower case matches to keep. Object: end up with the most sticks. :)
