I finished another project! I know, I know. Quite exciting. I was perusing etsy one day when I found this popsicle matching game for sale. I thought, "I could make that." Now, there's something you should know about me: I am an instruction follower. I don't make up my own recipes, I don't make up my own patterns, I don't make up my own rules to games. So it was kind of a stretch for me to make a project sans pattern.
Luckily, I already had all the supplies I needed--felt, popsicle sticks, and paint--or I'm not sure the project really would have happened. I made mine a little different from the original and was quite happy with how it turned out. (Yeah, it's a little embarrassing that I am so proud of making a popsicle-shaped pocket out of felt.)
Then I decided to get a little crazy and write the color names on the back of the sticks--that way, when Reed learns to read the game will be even cooler.
You don't have to tell me how amazing I am--I already know.
Then I decided to get really crazy and make my own pouch to hold the popsicles. The original game didn't even have a pouch. In other words, I came up with one of my first creative, original ideas that didn't involve writing a research paper.
And, voila! A popsicle color matching game:
The best part? Reed actually likes it and wants to play with it all the time. Score!
