The warmer months are here to stay for a while and that means you’ll find us outdoors often with the family. We love this time of year because we are able to get outside and enjoy the weather together. Our favorite outdoor activities include going to the park, the swimming pool, taking nature walks, and playing in the yard. After long periods of time outdoors, my kids are ready for a delicious drink to enjoy when they come inside.
I have many memories of Kool-Aid when I was a young girl. My mom would buy Kool-Aid packets (they were only $0.10 a packet!) by the dozen and we would make this delicious drink when we were kids. We’d pour the sugar into a pitcher, pour the contents of the packet in and fill the pitcher with water. Between four kids, the pitcher of Kool-Aid didn’t last very long. It was our favorite childhood drink growing up.
Fast forward to adulthood. I now have three children that enjoy tasty beverages.
I usually keep the freezer stocked with popsicles and we go through them so fast. This year, I decided I wanted to try to make our own popsicles made with Kool-Aid.
How to Make Your Own Popsicles
- Kool-Aid Mix (Tropical, Cherry, or Grape flavor)
- cold water
- Spoon to stir
- Icy pop molds (I recommend these clear ice pop molds!)
- Make a batch of Kool-Aid by following the directions on the package.
- Open the clear ice pop mold and place the funnel tube inside.
- Pour Kool-Aid drink to the fill line and then zip to close.
- Place the icy pops in the freezer until frozen.
Serve and enjoy!
Ice pops are easy to make! My kids are begging me for ice pops daily and I made plenty to last a while! I’m glad that I can give them tasty treats this spring and summer after their playtime that I know they will love.
