Last Summer, I came across this brilliant post at Growing Kinders! She had the ingenious idea of putting sight word chants on popsicle sticks! she made up little labels to print out and stick on Popsicle sticks to make it easy and convenient to do with the kiddos! Here are her sticks:
Isn’t she just the smartest person!? She never ceases to amaze me!;)
So, last summer I immediately printed off my labels, painted my sticks and stuck on my labels. Well, My labels didn’t really want to stick-so, I decided to put a coat of Modpodge over them….BAD IDEA!! They all stuck together and were RUINED!!! So, I never got to use them:(
Well, this Summer they were at the top of my “to-do” list. I decided that it would be nice to have a little clip art to go with the titles so that when my kiddos pulled one out-they would be able to see immediately what the chant was.
Here’s what I came up with: (Click on the picture below to grab them for yourself) They should print out nicely on 5160 Avery Address labels:)
So, then I made a trip to Hobby Lobby. I found these cute little sticks-like mini paint stirrers!;) So cute!
I painted them up with a little spray paint:
Printed off my labels and trimmed them down so that they would fit nicely on the sticks:
You will need to visit Kathleen at Growing Kinders to grab the descriptions to stick on the back:
I still wanted to seal them…but needed something less sticky-so,I put a thin coat of this water base clear varnish on it and them stuck them in a piece of Styrofoam so that they wouldn’t touch anything until they were completely dry. I think it worked!!;)
Now, they are in this cute little Jungle container that I found at Hobby Lobby:)
It’s actually a drinking straw holder. But, it’s perfect!!! When you lift the lid, the sticks come up for you to choose one:)
