Do you remember making popsicle stick crafts as a kid? I see a lot activities involving popsicle sticks in my future because we bought a box with 1000 of them! My daughter was ecstatic to go on a mom-daughter date with me to the craft store. We loaded up our basket with a ton of supplies. What I love about this project is that it works as a DIY gift from kids for many occasions, including Mother's Day and Father's Day.

Craft Popsicle Sticks
Decorations (stickers, ribbon, other embellishments)
First, gather up your craft supplies! If you want to paint your craft sticks, you will need to give them time to dry before starting this project.
Pick out the color you want for the interior of your house. Place the construction paper vertically on a flat surface.
Arrange the popsicle sticks in the shape a house as shown in the photo, then use the tacky glue to glue them in place. You will need to allow the glue to dry for a few seconds to a few minutes before continuing.
Next, cut a heart from the craft foam and glue it inside the house.
Trim the extra paper from around the outside of the popsicle stick house and decorate as much as you want! When you are finished decorating, glue the magnet on the back of the construction paper. Allow plenty of time to dry before putting it up on your refrigerator!
If you want to personalize this popsicle stick craft, you can write “Mom,” “Dad,” or someone's name on the heart or along one of the sticks. Another idea would be to add a photograph within the house, making it a cute photo magnet!
