Popsicle Pets

Create some of these adorable little pets this summer for hours of fun! The possibilities are endless!

What you need to make these:
  • large popsicle sticks
  • acrylic paints
  • permanent markers
  • paint brushes
  • glue & scissors
  • felt in brown and white or wooden coffee sticks
Step One 
Paint your large popsicle sticks in various colors using acrylic paints. The rounded portion of the top should be the color of your animal. For instance, brown for a little bear. Use the top color to make dots which will later be the hands and feet.

Step Two

Paint the tips of wooden coffee stirrers if you wish to add ears. If you don't happen to have any, cut pieces of felt works too! After they dry, trim off the ends and glue to the top of the larger popsicle stick.

Step Three
Add details to your animals with thin tipped permanent markers. I happened to have some white puff paint, so I added some pearls and buttons to my bear as well ;)

Add your Popsicle Pets to flower arrangements, potted plants, party platters, or stick in a small jar for display!
