Popsicle Noisemakers

last minute july 4th popsicle craft

Barbecues, popsicles, fireworks…yes, July 4th is nearly here! Whether you are marching in a parade or just running through the sprinklers in your backyard, it’s a day to hang out with friends and family and celebrate summer.

Here’s a quick little noisemaker craft that will get the kids in the spirit!

What you’ll need:

  • Small cardboard jewelry box
  • Popsicle stick
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Beads, beans, or rice
  • Red, white and blue tape

Use scissors to carefully poke a slit in the bottom of the box and press the popsicle stick through. Hot glue it in place.

Fill the box with beads, beans, or rice. (I happened to have star beads, but anything small will do!)

Put the top on the box and use the red, white, and blue tape to seal it shut, making it look like a striped rocket pop!
