No-Drip Popsicle Hack

This popsicle hack is simple yet very effective! Those super cheap paper cupcake liners are all you need. Just push the popsicle stick through the center of the liner and move the liner up to the bottom of the popsicle. It makes a perfect cup to catch all those popsicle drippings.

The Ultimate Freeze Pop Hack for Kids

We grab a big box of our favorite freeze pops at the start of summer and they’ll last all summer long. A little freeze pop holder makes the perfect alternative to wasting paper towels on all those popsicles all summer so they’re hands don’t get cold. I made one for each of my girls. You can see them in the video below.

How to Make it:

  • Cut out strips of felt so that when they’re folded in half they create your preferred sleeve length, and about 2 inches wide.
  • Unfold the strips and run a bead of glue on the edge of each long side.
  • Fold the strips in half and press the glued edges together.
  • Decorate with puffy paint with your kids’ initials or let them decorate their own.
