Popsicle Stick Puzzles

I love it when my 5 year old takes a project that I show him and goes crazy with it all on his own.

I made this popsicle stick puzzle for my boys. I have seen the idea several places and I thought it would be a fun puzzle for them. My 5 year old thought it looked like so much fun that he wanted to make some himself. So he made another rainbow...

And then a bunch more!
A flower:

A tiger:

An airplane up in the clouds:

A house:

OK, this one is mine, he asked for a little chick:

And here is him and his brother playing ball:

To store them, I put an elastic around each individual puzzle, then put them in an old tootsie roll can. Both my 5 year old and my 2 year old have enjoyed putting them together.

  1. What fun! We used popsicle sticks like that to make some little trivets that Scout gave to family for Christmas one year...but the puzzles are a great idea too...I'll have to remember that for Sunday School crafts...

  2. Oh, this looks like so much fun - thank you for sharing the idea! I must do this with my girls soon!

    I wanted to invite you to link-up your idea to the Sunday Showcase. It's my kids craft linky party! We go live Every Sat. night at 8 thru Sunday night! Hope you can share some of your fun ideas!

    I am now following you!

  3. Wanting to make this for St. Patrick's day this year. How did you get the popsicle sticks stay together for them to draw?

    1. We put a bit of masking tape on the back side to hold it together. Have fun!


I love to hear what you think. Please leave a comment!
