This is a really fun busy bag and a tasty one at that! As you can see below my daughter actually thought they were real popsicles. As soon as I said "popsicle" she jumped on them and started stuffing them in her mouth, so cute, but not when her drool made the marker start bleeding!
I got this idea from AndreaDekker on her site you will find several busy bag ideas, and number four is the "pop the popsicle" with a link to several ideas on how to use them. I simplified mine by just coloring the entire stick with a marker hoping to use them as a color matching game, but my daughter isn't quite there yet. But, she likes putting them in her mouth and trying to put the sticks in the popcicle!
I sewed the popsicle using scrap material because I felt it would be more durable, but you can easily just glue pieces of paper or felt together.
Let me know what you think of this busy bag idea. I had a lot of fun with it, let me know if you do to, or have any ideas of different things you could do with it.
