Playful Craft with Popsicle Sticks for Preschoolers

Craft with Popsicle Sticks for Preschoolers

A popsicle stick craft is a perfect way to spend a summer day with your toddler.

They can use their imagination and creativity to build almost anything they can imagine. You might even be surprised what they come up with!

Here it is a simple counting learning and motor skills development activity with toddlers.

This is a very easy craft for a toddler while building his/her fine motor skills as well as numbering.

Having a toddler around means you have to do things that you have never thought of before.

Like playing around with different things, and making enough crafts and DIYs to keep him engaged.

My kid is 2.5 years old.

I generally like playing with him by cutting colorful pieces of paper and then sticking them to the glass panes. Take a small piece of yarn and make different shapes such as a circle, triangle, and others.

There are just so many activities that you can do with your active and growing toddler.


What crafts can you make with popsicle sticks?

There are several popsicle stick ideas that are great for kids to enjoy.

The popsicle stick house and popsicle stick birdhouse are among the popular ones. Oh, there are also popsicle stick boats among the DIY popsicle stick crafts.

Out of the many crafts with popsicles that kids love, this one I found the easiest while imparting some knowledge.

Bring some small-sized rubber bands to fit them

All you have to do here is tell your toddler to put the rubber bands onto the popsicle sticks.

This kinda activity builds fine motor skills. 

If your child already knows numbering then instruct him to count and put that many rubber bands as written on the sticks.

Well, I wanted to make a video with him but he was doing it so slowly that I gave up 😀


My Take on Craft with popsicle sticks for preschoolers

All the colorful popsicle stick crafts are interesting for toddlers and engaging for kids.

If your toddler is just learning numbers then repeat this activity for somewhat 7 days and he will start to learn ‘counting’ faster.

Hey, mamas’ if you have some great ideas about how to develop your child’s cognitive skills then do share. I would love to know about it.
