Lollipop (1) when fully grown
Lollipop Seeds is a type of item found in the CandyLands.
Seeds can be obtained from breaking Sweet grass, which yields 0 to 1 Lollipop Seeds. If harvested with a Fortune enchanted tool the drop rate from Sweet Grass is increased.
Harvesting fully-grown Lollipop Seeds yields from 0 to 3 Lollipop Seeds per crop harvested (about 1 5⁄7 Lollipop Seeds/crop harvested on average).
Lollipop Seeds can be placed in farmland by right-clicking, where they will grow through eight stages. When left alone, Lollipop Seeds planted on farmland will grow to become a Lollipop crop which can be harvested by the player. Planted Lollipop Seeds need at least a Light level of 9 in the block above them to grow or be exposed to the sky.
Crops will grow faster if the farmland they are planted in is hydrated. Bone meal can also be used to increase the speed of growth by causing the seeds to randomly increase their stage by 1 to 7.
Breaking the final stage produces 0 to 3 Lollipop Seeds and 1 Lollipop. If they are harvested early, they will drop Lollipop Seeds without Lollipop. The more developed crops are, the more Lollipop they are likely to drop.
Farmland may be trampled (reverted to a Flour block) if the player or any mob (passive or hostile) falls onto the farmland from 1 block or more (i.e jumping or walking off a ledge). If trampled, the crops have the same drop rates they would normally have.
If falling sand or gravel falls on Lollipop crops, the falling sand/gravel will be destroyed because Lollipop crops are a non-solid block.
Creating a nice Easter basket can be trickier than finding good Christmas presents! Not only do you need to fill the basket with nice little gifts, but you also have to make sure the basket itself is visually appealing. I usually get empty Easter baskets from the store to fill for my kids, but this year they all seemed kind of plain to me. So I figured, why not use my DIY skills to make some cute custom Easter baskets this year! All you need is a few inexpensive materials to make this DIY Picket Fence Easter Basket!

I like to fill my kids’ Easter baskets with a mix of food treats and non-candy gifts. I usually can pick up some inexpensive toys in Target’s Dollar Spot or in the dollar store. Amazon also has a good selection of inexpensive Easter basket stuffers. While I like to save the majority of the Amazon gift cards I earn through Perk for Christmas, I do use a few of them to get some cute, small Easter toys and treats from Amazon!

Summer at my house means lots of playing outdoors, vacation and of course, popsicles. We go through tons of popsicles, which means that we have tons of popsicle sticks left over every single week. So, I started thinking about what I could possibly do with all of those popsicle sticks and I found 50 amazingly fun popsicle stick crafts that you will want to share with your kids this summer.
Popsicle stick crafts have been my favorites since I was a kid. We would always make something with craft sticks at summer camps and Bible schools and my kids love making things with those little sticks as well. I honestly can’t wait to show them some of these projects. From picture frames and airplanes to so many teaching games and activities, you are sure to find a great way to use up those craft sticks this summer. I do love a good craft that doubles as a teaching exercise and may of these popsicle crafts create games that will teach your toddlers and preschoolers so many things. Be sure to also check out these 30 DIY sensory toys and games for your little ones.
Part of me honestly dreads summer because I just know that my kids are going to be bored at some point. That’s why I thought these popsicle crafts were such a wonderful idea. They give your kids something to do, especially on rainy days, and when the crafts are finished, they have new toys that they will love playing with all summer long. And, if you tend to have bored children at home during the summer months, you should also check out these 50 fun crafts to keep kids entertained this summer. There is something in here for kids of all ages.
Not only will your little ones love making their own flower stems from painted popsicle sticks, they will also love making this flower art. The flowers are made from their handprints – so this is a keepsake for you as much as it is a fun craft for them. And depending on how old your kids are, this one requires very little supervision.
Little boys – and even a few little girls – are going to love making and playing with this popsicle stick airplane. You make this with different sizes of popsicle or craft sticks and wooden clothespins. They can paint and then glue their airplane parts together. This is a great little craft for summer birthday parties! You can make up baggies with all of the supplies and then let them have a blast making airplanes all afternoon.
Kids will love making their own little flower gardens, complete with stems made from painted popsicle sticks. You will love that this is also a teaching activity. Your little ones can practice their alphabet with this one and you only need a handful of materials to make it. This will definitely keep them entertained for hours at a time.
Avengers are so popular right now – at least they are in my house. That’s just one of the reasons why I love these Avengers bookmarks that your kids can make from popsicle sticks. They’re also really easy and fun to make. They can choose their favorite Avenger – there are so many to choose from – and make their own bookmark however they want it. Plus, this one encourages them to read!
Not only is this a craft that your toddlers can help you to make, it’s also a game that teaches them about balance. It’s a great DIY sensory game and so easy to put together. You need a collection of popsicle sticks, a piece of cardboard, a foam ball and just a few other basic craft supplies. This is a wonderful way to use up those craft sticks and give your little ones a fun summer activity that they can do indoors or out. Definitely add this one to your list of DIY backyard games this summer.
Now, this is probably a craft for little girls, although boys could do it as well, if they wanted. They could maybe do the stick people a bit less girly. You need a collection of craft sticks and some cupcake liners to make these cute little ballerinas. You will also need some paints – washable paints will work beautifully and be less messy – and a few pipe cleaners for this one.
Kids love barnyard animals and they will really love making their own with their popsicle sticks. You can help them to paint the sticks the appropriate colors and then let them use their imaginations to create horses, cows, pigs, chickens and any other animals that they love. They could also do zoo animals with this – you just need paint, craft sticks, and google eyes, buttons and felt.
Here is another fun popsicle stick project that gives them something to make and then something to enjoy playing with for hours at a time. This marble run is easy to make from just an old cardboard box, a few popsicle sticks and some marbles. This is a great project for repurposing cereal boxes or you could use any cardboard box that you may have on hand.
Popsicle stick picture frames are such a traditional craft stick project. I remember doing these in school. They are so easy and so much fun to make, and your little ones can decorate them however they want. Use the DIY frames to house their favorite summer photographs or you could make them even bigger than normal and use them to showcase their artwork.
This DIY game is made from craft sticks and it is just as much fun to play as it is to make. Your toddlers are going to adore helping you to create the different colors and they will have hours of fun learning how to match those colors when the game is finished. I love a good craft that also serves an educational purpose and this is definitely one of those projects.
Give your kids a lesson in nature while letting them enjoy a fun and creative craft stick project. This DIY bird feeder is made from popsicle sticks – and they can paint them various bright colors to make it even more fun. They just create the feeder by stacking and gluing sticks together and then fill it with bird seed and hang from a tree or the front porch.
Your kids can use those popsicle sticks to make their own giant popsicles. This is a great craft project for rainy days or when it’s just too hot this summer for them to go outside and play. They just take their popsicle sticks and use them as actual popsicle sticks for these large paper popsicles.
Let your little ones have a blast creating their own water color sculptures. They make these sculptures from popsicle sticks that they can paint in any number of colors. Then, they assemble them into a sculpture that you can hang on the fridge – just add a magnet to the back – or anywhere in the house with a bit of yarn or twine. These are so much fun to make!
Not only does this popsicle stick craft give your kids a new bracelet to wear, it helps to teach them about science. To make your own craft stick bracelets, you have to weaken the wooden craft sticks, which you do by boiling them in water for a bit. Once you have them limbered up,
your kids can decorate them with paint, yarn, stickers or any number of other embellishments.
Who says you have to spend a fortune on toys for your kids? You don’t and your kids can even help you to make their toys. These DIY popsicle stick dolls are a great example. They just take those craft sticks and then paint them to resemble their favorite characters. They could make these in any number of styles and decorate them with yarn, paint or any other type of embellishment.
Not only are these little harmonicas that you make with popsicle sticks cute, they are functional.

This DIY weaving loom is really easy to make and once it’s finished, your kids will have loads of fun creating other things by using it.

Weaving is a great learning experience too and it helps to teach toddlers about the different textures of fabrics.
Kids love kites and they will really love making their own little kites from popsicle sticks. These are so much fun to make and decorate and they could even fly them when they are finished.

For these popsicle stick puzzles, you print off images – whatever images you want -and then turn them into easy to manage puzzles for your toddlers.

They will have hours of fun putting together these little puzzles and they are a great teaching tool.
Summer is a great time for water play and your little ones will adore making their own boats from popsicle sticks.

The Genoa Candy Dance Arts and Crafts Faire, a tradition since 1919, is by far the town's largest annual event, attracting more than 300 vendors and drawing thousands of people to Genoa.
This year marks the centennial anniversary of the Candy Dance, started as a fundraiser to purchase street lights for the small, enterprising community of Genoa — Nevada's first settlement.
Lillian Virgin Finnegan, daughter of then prominent Judge Daniel Webster Virgin, suggested the idea of a dance and making candy to pass around during the dance as an incentive for a good turn-out of couples.
Genoa did raise the needed funds for streetlights, but realized the monthly electric bill had to be paid. The candy makers were then called upon each year to help promote the “Candy Dance” and pay a year’s worth of electricity for the streetlights throughout the town.
The Candy Dance eventually became the “Big Event of the Season” in the Carson Valley, attracting couples from Reno, Carson City, Minden, Gardnerville and surrounding areas to join in the evening's fun, often by horse and wagon, as well as “those new-fangled automobiles.”
An arts and crafts faire as added in 1974, later extending the event to a two-day weekend celebration. With all the people visiting the faire these days, the streets in and out of Genoa are temporarily closed during the day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Shuttles bring people from the main parking lots on Genoa Lane and Foothill Road, as well as the limited parking lot at the Genoa Cemetery.
The Candy Dance Dinner and Dance is held Saturday from 4 to 10 p.m.
For more information, directions, parking, schedule and to get your hands on dinner/dance tickets, and to plan your visit to Genoa and the Carson Valley, call the Genoa Visitors Center at (775) 782-8696 or click Visit Genoa.

I am so excited to share today’s project! If you follow me on Instagram (Really you should!), then you already got a tiny sneak peak of today’s project. This month’s GYDO theme is DIY Signs and I have been wanting to DIY a sign for above our TV for forever. Well what better time than now? I wanted something that looked vintage, like maybe it had been hand painted years ago.
Here is what I found in my stash make my sign:
I have been dipping into this curbside haul for months now making all kinds of good stuff! Here is said curbside pile I refer to so often in case you missed it:
That makes my DIY-lovin heart go pitter patter! If only I had room to take the whole pile…seriously I think I would have!
Ok back to the reason you’re really here, my sign! I was thinking maybe something that had been painted for a store years ago would be very cool.
Because we are only a mile from the beach and I have a lot of coastal inspired décor, I came up with this:
I love the impact that it adds to that side of the room! And that would be our TV. I never share this view of that side because the TV on top of our very dark console is like a big black hole over there. It’s not so bad now that my sectional is slipcovered white though.
To make this sign, first I figured out the size I wanted, then cut the pickets with my cordless Ryobi circular saw that was gifted to me recently. I really love not having to worry about dragging out the extension cord! Plus it’s smaller blade size makes it so much easier for me to handle.
Then I painted the pickets with flat latex paint in cottage white that I already had. I created what I wanted the sign to say in Photoshop Elements. You could use any photo editor, like Paint.NET, which I used in this post to share how to enlarge letters for sign making.
Then I printed the graphic I created on Blockposters.com. You just upload your image and tell them how many sheets of paper wide you want your sign to be. That’s my kind of math! Anything wider than six pages will cost you $5 though. I have never made anything wider than that until now, and it was worth the $5 to me.
I used this method to transfer the letters to my sign:
Then I painted them in using Delta brand black acrylic paint that I purchased at Michaels.
I used a larger brush for the larger letters and my trusty liner brush for the smaller letters across the bottom.
After the paint had dried for a few hours, I sanded the entire surface to reveal the wood beneath and give it a weathered feel:
I hand sanded with 150 grit over the letters and used my rotary sander around the edges. I did not bother to seal it with anything since it will be staying indoors.
I love how it turned out.
This is my TV console that I was considering painting this color blue. What do you think?
I love the character my new sign adds to that blank space. My hubby even liked it, and he doesn’t usually get too excited about what I do around here.
The best part about this project? It was FREE! Can I get a woohoo?? Ok well except I did have to pay $5 to print the graphics, but other than that, it was free! 🙂
Here are a few more projects I’ve created recently from that scrap wood pile:
DIY Reclaimed Wood Crate Beach-Inspired Bathroom Cabinet Window Shelf
A New Sign from a Curbside Find Reclaimed Wood Organizer DIY Halloween Sign
My beautiful GYDO cohosts have also created a bunch of signs of their own:
Five DIY Signs by April at House by Hoff
Three DIY Holiday Signs by Krista at The Happy Housie
Two Ways to Make DIY Signs with a Silhouette by Abby at Just a Girl and Her Blog
Thanksgiving Sign by Mandy at The Hankful House
I am so excited to see everyone’s signs this Sunday! And don’t forget to follow me on Instagram so you can see behind he scenes and get first peeks on what I’m working on!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
If you like what you see, there are several ways to follow along!
