I am absolutely in love with this packet of Gems. We have used these for everything from slime to sensory bin play to a variety of different crafts. My daughter will even ask to incorporate them into a variety of different pretend play scenes. But my favorite part? They come in a variety of sizes and if you have a child that likes to mouth items (like my son) they do carry pieces fairly large pieces. 

Directions for Popsicle Stick Christmas Ornaments:

Give each child participating their own pile of materials and let them create as much as they can on their own. While glue bottles can be tricky -and messy- this is a great chance to teach children how much glue to use and get them squeezing {which is excellent for fine motor}.

Glued Christmas Tree

Glue your Popsicle sticks into a triangle.
