So yesterday, at about 8AM, I decided that my daughter, my mom, and I should pack up and head to the zoo for the day. We have a membership to a local zoo and we do these random trips a lot. I had about an hour to spare before we would leave, so I came up with this overly simple activity to kill a few minutes of time.
- Popsicle stick
- a half of piece of construction paper
I started off by just freehand drawing then cutting a popsicle shape from the piece of construction paper. I do not usually freehand draw or cut anything, because it ends up looking terrible, but this is a super easy shape to cut. Next, I let my daughter color on the shape. We used crayons, but the possibilities are really endless on how to decorate the popsicles.
Last, I just flipped it over and had my toddler help me glue a stick onto the back. This really was probably the easiest five minute activity ever!
