I have been teaching a science curriculum for the 5 year old kids in our homeschool co-op while the older kids are in an anatomy class. The curriculum I have used this year is Bugs to Bunnies. I recently taught a lesson on lizards. Once I teach the lesson the kids and I do a craft and/or an activity to accompany the lesson.
Popsicle stick lizards
Popsicle sticks (I used jumbo sticks)
Markers, Bottle glue
2 Googly eyes
Glue gun with hot glue
First I had the kids color their Popsicle sticks. As they colored I cut the chenille sticks into 3 inch pieces (needing 2 of these pieces per lizard). Take the chenille sticks and bend them so it looks like a boxy shaped letter “u”. With the outer pieces fold under (these are the feet). Then with the hot glue glue them to the underside of the Popsicle stick. Finally have the kids use the bottle glue to glue the googly eyes to the top of the Popsicle stick.
What kids crafts have your children made using Popsicle sticks? For more Popsicle stick fun be sure to check out my other kids crafts:
