Paper Popsicles – for Imaginative Play

These are easy to whip up and are fun for imaginative play (set up an ice cream shop), use as party invitations (write on the back) or decorations (make a bunting with string). Make your own (use the blank printable) or you can download the template my kids and I painted with watercolours, which makes it quick and mess free.

Name the Flavours

One of the uber fun parts is to name the flavours and set up shop. My kids grabbed an empty box, wrote out all the flavours on the side, then cut inserts into the top of the box for the ice creams to sit.
