Summer Craft- Lollipops

My regular readers may remember that I’ve been holding weekly craft sessions this summer for as many as 19 girls, ranging in age from 4 to 17, in my little girl craft club- which finally has a name: the SURF club. The girls voted on names this past week and SURF won. SURF stands for Sweet, Unique, artistic/aRtsy Friends and ties in with the beach theme of my craft room, which is now called Camie’s Crafting Cove. 🙂

This was such a fun kid craft! I got the idea from an early Christmas display at Hobby Lobby. What’s with lollipops and Christmas? I have to say I don’t get the connection. But this was a delightful summer craft for my girls.

For this craft I pulled together the following supplies-

  • round cake boards (I chose the 8″ boards that come in a pack from Hobby Lobby’s baking section)
  • 12″ dowels (these came in a pack from Walmart’s craft section)
  • markers
  • scrapbook paper
  • craft punches
  • scissors
  • glitter glue, glue sticks, clear Elmer’s glue
  • adhesive gemstones (Walmart has these in sheets)
  • scrap ribbon, craft string, yarn
  • buttons, tiny craft pom poms, sequins (whatever you already have on hand)
  • duct tape (to attach the dowel to the back of the lolly)

One of the girls made another lollipop with a paper plate and then she painted it black and brushed glitter glue on to make a galaxy pop. 🙂

First the girls decorated the white side of their cake boards using a combination of the materials that appealed to them. Some also decorated their dowel with string or the adhesive gems (which came in long strips) and most added a bow just below the lolly.

The lolly on the right is strawberry lemonade flavor. 🙂

♥ Which is your favorite? This was one of our last craft sessions for the summer as public school begins here on August 22nd. Marcus and I will start our homeschool year August 30th which is the first day of his online classes. Do you have any fun end-of-summer plans? I’d love to hear about them. Thanks for stopping by. ♥
