Presents we’re making

One of our new year resolutions was to make our own presents. So people around us will get presents from the heart. Not storebought, but homemade.

The first birthday is later this week. Maximan can choose what birthday gift he would like to make and give. He chooses velcro sticks. Earlier this week Maximan and I made velcro sticks busy bag. He loves them. Which is such a joy to see.

The velcro sticks below are or first try-out. The better version has velcro in the middle too and on both sides.

What do you need:

  • Popsickles
  • Sticky velcro
  • Waterpaint

First we choose the colors we like to use. Maximan picks yellow, red, blue, green, orange and purple, the primary and secondary colors. Together we paint all the popsickles in the choosen colors. After the popsickles have dried we cut and attach the velcro to the popsickles. The end result: Velcro Popsickle Sticks.
