Easiest Popsicles

Popsicles are a quintessential summer treat!  And they're even a little bit more special when you let your kids make them!

You only need a few things:

1 box Jello
1 packet Kool-Aid
1 and 1/4 cups sugar

You can use any flavors of jello and kool-aid that you think sound good together.  I chose peach jello and peach mango kool-aid.  

I'd just make sure that the colors wouldn't blend together to make brown.  

Nobody wants a creepy brown popsicle.

Aaaaaanyway, put the sugar and kool-aid

and jello in a freezer ziplock.

Shake the bag to combine the ingredients. 

FYI, 2 year olds are really great at shaking things.

Shaker extraordinaires, if you will.

The nice thing about this recipe is that you can just make a small batch of popsicles at a time and can easily save the mix to use another time.  Or, do the math to make more popsicles!

To make 6 popsicles, combine 6 tablespoons of powdered mix with 3/4 cup of boiling water.  Stir to be sure the powder is dissolved.  I did this part, so that Gracie didn't risk getting burned.  Then, add 3/4 cup of cold water.  Stir to combine.

Pour the liquid mixture into popsicle molds.

Freeze until hard and enjoy your tasty work!

And you can let your sisters enjoy the fruit of your labors!

I love how Leah is being all stoic (she was making that face to be silly) and Maggie can't help but giggle :)

Enjoy your weekend!  We are headed to a wedding on Saturday...should be fun!

If you don't have a wedding on Saturday, I bet you could make popsicles ;)
