I bought a big packages of popsicle sticks at the dollar store the other day and I was trying to think of something simple and fun to do with them. We ended up making popsicle stick puzzles.
To make one you need to gather a few popsicle sticks - I'd recommend around 8-10. Put some tape along them so they stay in place.
Flip the sticks over.
And draw your picture.
Take the tape off the back and mix up your sticks and voila!
We also did a butterfly.
If you wanted to get even more cutesy, you could get a family picture, or a page from a magazine and modge podge or glue the image to the sticks and then use an x-acto knife to cut the seams.
