This was a spur of the moment craft created when a three year old noticed a sheet of felt circles I had sitting around. As they were self stick pads for the bottom of chair legs and I had extras, I began to think what he could stick them on.
I grabbed some Popsicle sticks and googly eyes and we had little puppet people in no time. We twisted some bread ties to make arms.
After this, I cut some slits in the top of an empty Kleenex box and we stuck the people in. We added some felt circles and googly eyes and we had wheels and head lights.
Note: I like to use tacky glue for the eyes, as it dries fast enough for kids to play with right away.

I made this trivet using tongue depressors. It was a lot of fun to make.
Here are some other ideas using popsicle sticks:
Paint the sticks then glue them onto a coffee can lid in a sunburst pattern. You can use variations on one color or glow-in-the-dark paint, markers, or glitter paint. Also can cut every-other one to be shorter for a more fancy effect. :-) Three of these hung on a surface together are really cute and Summery!
