As, the spring holidays are on and like me other parents are also trying to spend good quality time with their kids. Therefore, in today’s post I decided to bring the simple yet very easy & creative activity, kids will enjoy with their parents and could spend joyful time together along with lots of learning.

I along with my daughter also enjoyed this activity which we had done with Popsicle sticks. Popsicle sticks crafts allow you to create a lot of different, unique and interesting things like you can see below, the house we made by using these Popsicle sticks. It hardly took an hour and showed up as a wonderful creation. My daughter was really happy when the Popsicle sticks turned up into the wonderful house shape. You can also have fun with your little kids by making such beautiful Popsicle sticks house or whatever shape, design or object your kids want to build.

Engaging your children in such activities is very beneficial for their mental and physical health. As these activities help them in:

  • improving fine and gross motor skills.
  • enhancing their intellectual skills.
  • learning how to follow the instructions.
  • boosting confidence.
  • increasing vocabulary and learning.
  • increasing cognitive skills.
  • increasing ability to work as a team.

  5. Hey Sarah, thanks for the tips on generating some school holiday fun by creating Popsicle stick crafts. We usually have our young nephew & niece staying over the holiday period and always search google before they visit for inspiration to keep them occupied. And here we are with Popsicle sticks.
    We’ll start by making these log cabins further to creating our own ideas. The kids will love their basic construction and enjoy crayoning in their unique designs because they’re both artistic. I like your tip with regards to framing too, we’ll all have some great fun.
    We’ve always a box full of Popsicle sticks due to the kids creating their own ice lollops, there’s another post idea.
    Thanks again Sarah,
    Simon.

  6. I think this could make a great Christmas craft if you added some cotton balls to the roof to make snow! I’m going to bookmark this one for the holidays!

  7. What wonderful tips, thanks for sharing. School holidays are coming up down under and its freezing cold. So this is sure to keep my 3 troops entertained for awhile. Thank you.
