Crafts for the Holidays Challenge Day 5: Picture Frames

Today's popsicle stick craft will not only be fun for your kids, but you can turn this craft into a picture frame. Keep the frames for yourself or give them as gifts to loved ones!

Materials needed:
Popsicle sticks
Paint
Markers
Glue
Pipe cleaners, ribbon, or yarn
Optional Supplies (glitter,sequins, pom poms, etc)

Have your kids color the popsicle sticks and then glue them together in whatever shapes you want. Once the frames are dry, have your kids decorate them. Glue a picture to the frame and then attach a pipe cleaner, ribbon, or yarn if you want to turn it into an ornament.


Do you have a holiday picture taken of your kids each year? Do you take it or get it done professionally? Do you give pictures of your kids as presents during the holidays?

Yes, every year.  We used to get them done professionally but now we just have my brother do them.  We do not give pictures as presents, but we do give them to family. :)

We have lots of craft/popsicle sticks and the kids like to make log cabins out of them. 

We always send a photo card. THis year we have 4 pics on our card. Two holiday pics we took and two professional family ones we had done in the spring. We often give photos in frames as gifts, but not this year. I did do a photo book for my grandparents.
