Turn Ice Cream Sticks into Popsicle Phonics Fun For Your Little Ones

While puzzles are a lot of fun, sometimes taking one on the go can lead to more trouble than it’s worth, especially when those little pieces go missing. For this busy bag activity we made our own puzzle that is cheap to make, and easily replaced if parts get mislaid.

As my 3 year old charge is learning her Jolly phonics, I decided for the initial bunch I would do the first group of phonics which she is learning; S, A, T, I, P and N. There is also a number puzzle to do as well.

For your own popsicle puzzle you will need:

  • Coloured popsicle sticks
  • Pen
  • Zip bag
  • Something to tie them up with

For each letter you do, try to keep the popsicle stick colour the same. I used between 3-5 sticks per letter and then drew a little picture on the bottom to help identify the sound. To keep each letter together when I put them away, I used spare Loom Bands that we had lying around.
