Popsicles Matching Game/Busy Bag


This is a fun and simple handmade game that is sure to keep your children busy! All you need are some popsicle sticks and scrapbook paper or cardstock, you will need 1 solid color for the back and different patterns for the front side. Cut the popsicle/ice cream shapes out of the paper, out of each patterned paper, cut 2. Using the solid paper, cut out 1 popsicle shape to go with each patterned piece. Sandwich the top of a popsicle stick in between a solid and a patterned popsicle shape and glue them together. Repeat with the remaining popsicle shapes. Let them dry and you have got yourself a colorful matching/memory game! The more popsicles you make, the more difficult it is to find all of the matches. This makes a great busy bag, just stick them in a Ziploc bag and keep them in your purse until you need them to entertain your children!
