It’s getting nice and warm and that means it’s time for Popsicles! I love Popsicles. Like, love love them! I could live off of them. Since we live so far away from a store, the only ones that we will be able to enjoy is the freezer pops. My kids always complain about it being cold on their hands, so I made them some holders to help keep their hands warm.
This is the major reason why I made them, they always ask for a paper towel to wrap around it. With 4 kids and them having 2 to 3 Popsicles a day, it really starts to add up and costing.
This is how I made them:
I took some felt and cut a piece 4x6 inches.
I folded it in half and sewed the three sides. I didn’t even flip it inside out, I just let the stitch on the outside. This could easily be done with a glue gun too.
Insert a Popsicle and that’s it! Super easy and quick, only took 5 minutes to make these 4.
I wanted to make some more fun ones, so I made one to look like a sword. I cut two little strips and then cut a hole in the middle of the 4x6 piece.
Stuck the small pieces in the side and then sewed it altogether.
Fun huh? My boys loved it!
Of course with my Star Wars loving boys, I HAD to make ones that looked like light sabers. I just made the holder out of black and then glued the other pieces onto it.
And for my little girl, she needed something a little more girly. So she got a wand. I put the ric rac into the felt and sewed it into the holder.
A fun way to enjoy Popsicles.
I will be using these too, because I don’t like my hand to freeze either.
I found some fun patterned felt and made some with it, love how they turned out!
My kids enjoying a yummy treat on a warm (and windy) day. And you better believe I enjoyed a couple Popsicles while making these!!
These are perfect for frozen Gogurts too!
