Picture Pops activity

There is a lot of talk and questions from the boys about babies since Aunt Ja-joy has a baby in her "tummy."
They want to read through their baby books almost every day and seem especialy interested in the ultrasound pictures.
I had doubles of some of their baby pictures and decided to make a project out of it.
What you will need:
  • scissors
  • popsicle sticks
  • glue
  • pictures
I cut out the face of one of their baby photographs and then glued the popsicle stick to the back of the picture. The imaginary play with these "picture pops" reminded me of how they would play with finger puppets (talking, they were feeding them, comforting them if they were "crying",etc.).

I think this would be good if you have a long distance relative that they miss. Cut the relative's picture out and put it on a stick for interaction - recreate a memory they have together, etc. Or paste the picture of the child and relative onto a sheet of construction paper and incorporate the picture into a drawing.
