Ice balls are back at my favorite ice cream parlor… so it’s officially time to bust out the frozen treats! Popsicles, sno-cones, and ice cream cones are just a few of my favorite things!
It’s no secret, I’m not very artistic or crafty! I even made some NO PREP craft bundles – articulation and speech therapy crafts (covers articulation, language, and fluency) to make up for it! Crafts are fun, engaging, and are wonderful activities to keep students engaged between turns. The NO PREP crafts are game-changers, but occasionally I won’t to throw in some traditional crafts too!
Today, I want to share a low prep craft that you may want to try out this summer or during the last few weeks of school!
These popsicles are so cute and fun to make!
– Popsicle Sticks (giant or regular sized)
– Construction Paper
– Word Pieces
– Washi Tape (optional)
1) Cut out a popsicle shape using construction paper (I didn’t use a template. It’s a little lopsided, but that’s okay)
-Note: I used the entire size of the construction paper, because I had giant-sized popsicle sticks. You can definitely make smaller popsicles!
2) Create stripes using word pieces. You can find horizontal strips in my Summer: Snip and Stick Apraxia packet (shown) or Summer Articulation Bundle (you can also grab early sounds, later sounds, /s/ blends, /r/ blends, and /l/ blends individually).
-Note: I didn’t even cut individual word pieces. I just left the rows intact for easy glueing!
3) Between each word stripe, put a washi tape stripe for extra color!
4) Place glue on half of the popsicle stick and then glue the popsicle on top!
Super easy! These will certainly keep students focused between turns!
Also, you don’t have to have horizontal word strips! If you own my NO PREP craft bundles mentioned above, you already have circle-shaped word pieces! Students can glue polka dots onto their popsicles instead!
If you don’t have word pieces at all, no problem! Just have students decorate their popsicles with stickers!
I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
