Silliness aside, the kids do love popsicle sticks. They stack them, glue them together, and the latest obsession is the popsicle stick catapults.
Today we are doing a simple popsicle stick picture frame. The great thing about this craft is that you can customize it to any occasion. You build the frame, and your child can decorate it with egg stickers for Easter, hearts for Valentine’s Day, red and green pom-poms for Christmas, etc.
