If you are looking for a fun way to cool off this summer, consider making your own juice pops! It is easy to do, fun, and most importantly- delicious. This is a great activity to do with your kids, because they can help out and go through it without running the risk of a huge mess or having anything burned during a botched cooking job.
This is also a great activity because it actually is pretty healthy. Most frozen treats have a very high sugar concentration, making them not the healthiest choice overall. Frozen juice pops taste just as good, and are going to be more pure in nature. Essentially, they are a good treat to enjoy in any circumstance.
The process is an easy one. Simply pick any juice that suits you and fill up an ice cube tray with it. After the tray has been filled with juice, stick a toothpick or something similar into each individual cube face, facing upward. Gently place this tray is your freezer, and let it sit for a few hour. Once everything freezes, you will have frozen fruit juice that can be pulled out and eaten!
There are of course variations to be found and you don’t have to use toothpicks if you don’t want to. For added fun,consider getting some silly ice cube trays,so that your kids can make custom treats that are unique to them.
There are many different ways for you to be able to cool off and have fun with your loved ones this summer. Just remember, that with a little bit of creativity, you can always find something great to do! This applies whether you are taking care of kids or are simply looking for a silly activity. There is no age limit on fun!
