Getting Started

You will firstly need to download the printable Popsicle template by clicking here. Once you have printed the template you will need to cut it out. You may need to give your kids a hand with the cutting, especially if they are very young.

Then trace the template onto your green foam sheet with a marker or a pencil and cut it out. Once again, you may need to guide the kids with the cutting here.

Once the green foam has been cut, glue a Popsicle stick to the back of the cut out. It should now resemble a true Popsicle. Now you can glue the Popsicle onto the white poster board.

It is now time to glue on the finishing touches. Glue the googly eyes into place, draw a nice big smile onto the Popsicle (or cut once out of black foam) and glue on a couple of rosy cheeks cut from pink foam.

You can also cut out some Popsicle drips from the green foam and glue them around the Popsicle onto the white poster board.
