Popsicles are a staple summer treat! My kids love to eat homemade ones best! You can buy fancy popsicle molds . Or, you can do as we do, and just use Dixie cups. These are so simple and even possible for kids to help with.
1. Choose your child’s favorite juice flavor and make it up according to package directions.
2. Pour into molds or cups. Be sure to leave a little room for freezer expansion. Carefully put in freezer.
3. About 30 minutes to one hour later, check and see if they are partially frozen (they need to be partially frozen, not all the way). Usually the tops freeze first, which is perfect. Add your popsicle stick. You can find these in bulk in the craft section. Leave in freezer. **Hint: I set a timer for 1/2 hour so that I don’t forget!
4. After a couple of hours, your popsicles will be ready to eat!
