Nothing screams summer like a delicious popsicle! I grew up eating so many with my siblings. We used to look forward to seeing that yellow truck from Schwan’s food delivery service pull up to my grandmother’s house. They had the best popsicles besides the ice cream truck. Your kids will love making this colorful cardboard popsicle craft to celebrate summer.

Supplies for Colorful Cardboard Popsicle


  1. Start by downloading and printing the popsicle template then cut it.
  2. Trace the template on the cardboard using a marker or pencil. We used a cardboard from snack boxes but any box will be fine.
  3. Next, cut the popsicle then get ready to decorate.
  4. Paint the popsicle cardboard any color then allow it to dry. You can add washi tape to make different patterns for your popsicle.
  5. Decorate popsicle with glitter, pom poms or glitter glue. Allow it to dry.
  6. Finally, glue popsicle to the jumbo craft stick to complete this fun summer art project.

My oldest son had a great time making the colorful cardboard popsicle craft. This is one of those projects where kids can create any design they want. They can make a pattern using the washi tape or go all out with the glitter. Let your children get creative with their popsicle craft.
