Feature Friday - Popsicle Stick Puzzles

A couple of months ago I saw these simple puzzles on Made:


And Dana got the idea from this one from Saltwater Kids:
I loved the idea and thought they'd be fun and easy to try out.  I grabbed a bag of colored craft sticks so I wouldn't have to mess with the spray paint (and since the colored ones were only a few cents more).  I figured if I really wanted the boys to use them, I'd probably need to draw some Super Hero signs on them........



Rex thought they were pretty cool.


I plan on throwing them all in one bag.  That way they can sort them by color and then put them all in order.  It would be a great quiet toy for church.  I think we'll give it a shot Sunday :)


You can read Dana's tips HERE and Emily's tips for making them HERE.  Thanks for the fun, easy idea ladies!  

Thanks for reading.

i made some of these for my small cousin. i also made a chalkboard tray that was magnetic. so i put small magnets on the back of each stick so that she could keep them in place while she was working on them. she plays with her chalkboard/magnet tray in church all the time!

Great idea for a party invite too! We used to have the kids make those at VBS, draw their own pic on. Cheap, easy and enjoyable!
