Popcicle Kids Craft with Video

Here's a fun craft to do with your children. If you've recently written about a fun craft (or have posted photos or a video of a fun activity) leave me a link!









And yes, I realize I am very "country" sounding. Here are some pictures of all of our family.... in the form of popcicle kids! Yes, Nana, Poppa, MawMaw and PawPaw.... Uncles, Aunts, and... hmm, I should make one of the dog.


Here's our little family- Brandon, Mandy, Merika, Nolyn, and Keagan!


My husband and brother-in-law look very similar, so I asked my kids how I should "decorate" them so they stand apart. Merika told me, "Well, Uncle Why-an (Ryan) has a bigger gommatee (goatee) than Daddy." She's right- Brandon keeps his trimmed, Ryan doesn't. Nolyn said, "Uncle Why-an wears a hat, too. And sometimes he's got dirt on him." Also true! When we lived in Louisiana, they saw a lot of their uncle- but it was usually after work!

This is so neat - I've never seen those before!

Your popsicle people were really creative - I liked the expressions on their faces! :o) The children's comments on how to decorate their dad's and uncle's figures were so funny . . . little kids can be so observant!

Oh my goodness your video was so cute! I know we used to talk on the phone so I know how you sound but it was so funny to see you as "a real person"!

CUTE!! I loved it (especially M's little cute voice!) She's sounding so grown up.

Mandy, those are sooo cute! You are so artistic with the details on them! I can pick our your Mom out of the group of them, just from the deatil!:) Can you buy the popsicle sticks with the people figures on them, or do you glue on the people part? Must check out Hobby Lobby soon!:)

Great idea! Wow, this video made me realize how long it's been since I've seen you! Totally not the same Mandy I remember! (I guess I still have this image of you as a 15 year old...but that's probably how you remember me too!)

I've never talked to you before...actually talked to you. When we talk online or I read your posts, you do have a voice in my head that I equate with you...if that makes sense. Then I listen to this....and I was soooooo wrong. LOL

I am going to have to look for those lil things....Kylie would love em!
