Welcome to the “Popsicle Hut” (or “what happens when Stacie gets a hold of Luca’s craft supplies”). One of the best things about being a parent is having that extra excuse to indulge your silly side. Like spending a whole evening making a popsicle stick snack shack for instance.
I wish I could claim this as an original idea, but it’s based on a project from Martha Stewart.com along with some other pretty cool popsicle stick creations. The instructions are a little lacking, but in a way, I prefer that. It invites you to make the project your own. We actually had the most fun of all making teeny popsicles out of the project scraps — and thinking up funny flavors like Luca’s favorite, cherry eyeball surprise. [A popsicle fun fact: Did you know the popsicle was invented in 1905 in San Francisco by eleven year old Frank Epperson? It’s an interesting story you can read more about here.]
We have grand visions of a whole popsicle stick town, but in the meantime, playing popsicle hut is keeping us awfully busy. Tutti Frutti Sparkle or Super Lime Fantastic anyone?
