During summer, kids have a lot of time on their hands. In order to not let kids become victims of too much screen time, indulging them in craft activities is a great way to spend their time creatively.
I like themed crafts because they teach kids a lot about each season and each holiday. Kids learn to identify each season with its special fruits, food, clothes, and how nature changes.
Our aim is to give you lots of ideas on crafts that can be done during each season and during holidays, so stay tuned!
Today, we have an easy summer craft that can be done by preschoolers and above.

Step 2: Color it
When you do the coloring, do not color the whole picture. Leave some white spaces in all the pictures to stick paper confetti later.
Step 3: Cut the Ice cream figures out
Step 4: Make paper confetti
One of the exciting steps for kids in doing this summer craft could be making paper confetti. I mean who doesn’t like confetti?
Take different coloured papers and punch holes in them to make confettis.
Step 5: Stick the popsicle stick to the back of each ice cream cutout
Step 5: Sprinkle the paper confetti
Now, apply glue to the white uncolored parts of each ice cream stick and sprinkle different colored paper confetti on them. Keep it aside for some time and let it dry.
Thus, the colourful Ice cream popsicle sticks that reminds us of hot summers are ready!
