Popsicle stick crafts for kids are a great way to teach the colors. 

Kids are learning to read earlier and earlier. When I was a preschool teacher, I knew the kids would need to be reading at the end of Kindergarten. With this in mind, preschool is the perfect time to start teaching some of those color words. Color matching games are a great way to teach the colors and these popsicle stick crafts

How To Make These Popsicle Stick Crafts

First, you need to cut out 2 popsicle shapes from each color of the foam.

Make sure the length of these are a little bit longer than half the length of the craft sticks. The size of mine were about 2 ½”X 4”.

On one side of each craft stick, color the end with each marker color. I colored up about 2 inches from each end.

On the backside of the stick you colored red, use the black marker and write the word red at the end of it.

Repeat this step with all the other coloured sticksNow you need to glue together each of the sets of foam popsicle shapes.

To do this, start with the red foam popsicles and put a line of hot glue around the edges of one of the pieces.

Do not put a line of glue along the bottom edge!

This will be left open.

Press the other red piece on top of that one so they are glued together.

Repeat this with all the foam popsicles.

Now you will be able to slide each foam popsicle onto it’s coordinating stick.

Colour Matching

This fun learning game can be played by laying out the popsicle sticks with the colored side facing up.

Put the sticks into the matching colored foam popsicle.

For a bit more challenge, lay out the popsicle sticks with the color words face up and put the sticks into the foam popsicles that match their same color word.
