Ice Lolly Preschool Craft


Ice Lolly Summer Craft for Toddlers and Preschoolers - Learning and Exploring Through Play

We have been very lucky so far this year and have had some great hot, sunny weather here in the UK. It's been very welcomed of course! We've already enjoyed lots of days out and I am already starting up a little tan which is a bonus as I have a family wedding around the corner. It will save me attempting to fake tan, which always looks particularly cringy around my elbows, knees and knuckles! I don't think I will ever master it!

Right back to why I am posting today. With the weather being so great and lots of fun family days out - this has meant we have already consumed lots of delicious ice creams and Ice Lollies! This inspired our most recent craft which is perfect for Toddlers and Preschool aged children!
You will need:

Coloured Card
Popscicle Sticks
Cellotape
Glue
Crafty Bits to decorate - pom poms/glitter/sequins (whatever your heart desires)

Ice Lolly Summer Craft for Toddlers and Preschoolers - Learning and Exploring Through Play

Cut your ice lolly shapes out.

You can either do this free hand or use our free template.

If you want to use our template just right click on the image  to the left and click save to your computer. 

You can either print this directly by right clicking and then scrolling to print or you can upload the image into a word document to alter the size as needed and then go on to print. 

It is a large template so you should have no issue with enlarging it on a word document.

If you need a hand just drop me a message and I will do my best to help you out!

Once you have your shapes cut out you are ready to go!

Collect together some of your crafty items and using PVA glue start to decorate your ice lollies!

My preschooler was in her element with this craft! She loves glitter and sparkly bits so she was away! It reminded me of the Fairy Wands we created last year!

She loved using the glitter glue which I suddenly remembered half way through the craft! They not only look really pretty and effective - they are great for building up the muscles in little hands as they have to squeeze the tubes to get the glittered glue to ooze out.

It was also the same for the PVA glue which I left in the bottle, for this reason. She used a glue spreader then to spread it around. I love the patterns they made!!

They particularly looks great collectively so you may wish to turn this into some sort of display in your setting!

I use my patio doors to display our recent art projects and I love the additional colours these have added to the collection!!

So next time you are looking for a activity to do with your Preschooler, cut out some stencils get all the crafty bits out and leave your little one to get busy!



I wonder where our activities/arts and crafts will take us to next.....
