Icecream Stick Animal Bookmarks

Sharing is caring!

DIY Colorful Icecream Stick Animal Bookmarks. They are perfect for brightening up reading time and you are sure to find a wild animal you love!

Today I am sharing a collection of Icecream stick animals. There are tons of kids’ crafts that can be made with popsicle sticks (or lolly sticks). I hope you will be inspired to make your own crafty animals and enjoy playing or displaying them. These are great for cheap and mess-free dollar store crafts and a good creative day with the little ones even toddlers and kindergartners.

 Don’t overthink this one. If you know someone who loves to read and goes bananas over cute stuff, then make them these Ice cream Stick Animal Bookmarks. They’ll love ’em! The set includes one of each of the following animals: Zebra, Snake, Tiger, and Lion.

Icecream Stick Animal Bookmarks

After a 2 month break, we started our craft class again. We decided to make animal bookmarks this month. We made roaring lions, growling tigers, bouncy zebras & a hissing snake. We used colored popsicle sticks from itsy bitsy and craft papers. Glue & Marker to add some designs. Do try this easy project and let us know how it went. Here’s the happy face pic from the class.

Craft sticks can be turned into just about anything. The cute characters found in a barnyard are a great example! Cows, horses, pigs, chickens, and more, all in craft stick form! I’ve always loved craft sticks as a surface. They are inexpensive and have so many possibilities.
