I too love the popsicle stick jewelry box. And it’s practical as well. I think I found something for the little people to do for granny next mother’s day!

I still have similar crafts that my kids made for me many years ago! It’s the little things and the time spent together that I’ll always cherish!

The apron idea is cute, fun and affordable. I think that would be a great project to do with my nieces. My sister would love it!

I used to make popsicle crafts for my mom all the time! She probably still has some of the stuff packed away somewhere.
