Popsicles are not just a delicious summer treat (a favorite in our house!), but the leftover popsicle stick makes a perfect “ingredient” for many a fun arts-n-crafts activity. So, if you’re looking to keep your kids busy this summer, start saving those little wooden sticks. We’ve got a lot of fun ways to use them!
