There’s something about a popsicle that takes me back to when I was a kid playing outside in the summertime. My sisters and I would snag a popsicle from the freezer and go eat it outside on the swing set or under the big tree in our backyard.
Now I get to share that joy with my own kids and while some days it’s easier to pull a store-bought popsicle from the freezer, making them together is also a great activity that is (usually) fairly mess-free.
