Popsicle sticks to many, but they’ll always be lolly sticks to me. Whatever you choose to call them though, you should never thrown them away after you’ve finished your treats.
They make an excellent addition to your kids arts and crafts supplies, coming in handy for so many different activities. Here are a selection of my favourites from bloggers around the globe.
