I’ve made my Popsicle Pick game…finally! I had the idea last year, but just made time to bang it out. I’m excited to add it to our short list of simple ways to review our memory work.
I took the color assigned to each subject on the memory master flashcards and painted one end of a popsicle stick to match. They’re shown here drying, but for the game I’ll place them in a solid cup or can so the color cannot be seen. Each of my littles will take a turn picking a stick and answering a question from the subject they selected. If you don’t have the memory master flashcards, you could just as easily write a subject name on each stick.
If you’re painting them, here’s a simple tip to avoid dirtying a bunch of little paintbrushes. I squeezed a little paint on the end of one popsicle stick at a time. I then squished it onto a thick piece of paper, which spread the excess paint on the paper. I flipped the stick over to dip the other side in the excess paint now on the paper. I double checked the coverage and it worked great!
Happy reviewing, everyone!
