Princess Popsicles: DIY Kids' Treats

Who doesn’t love glitter and sparkles? And who could resist a princess popsicle? I recently posted a glitter ice melting paint activity. As I was freezing the food coloring and glitter (it’s not at all edible), I started to think of ways to turn this art exploration into something tasty. And that got me thinking about these DIY kids' treats.

I had some left over pearlescent sugar from making Monet’s Impressionist cupcakes. I’m not a baker, so I don’t really have any reason to use the rest of the colorful pastel shiny sugar. It looks like glitter, but is edible. That’s where the idea of princess pops hit me. It’s so super-simple, but perfectly pretty and a totally tasty treat! As a bonus, the kids get a science lesson too – experimenting with liquid to solid to liquid transformations. You can make these any day or add them to a princess-themed birthday celebration!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Juice- I used two different kinds. Cranberry strawberry juice for pink popsicles and lemonade for light yellow ones.

·        Pearlescent sugar- You’ll find this at the grocery store with the sprinkles and other cupcake toppers.

·        An ice cube tray- I used a plain one, but you can try stars to make princess wands or any other shape that your child wants.

·        Straws

·        Scissors

Here’s What to Do:

1.      Cut the straws in half. Each half will become a popsicle stick.

2.      Help your child to sprinkle the sparkly sugar into the ice cube tray compartments. Line the bottom of each “cube” with the sugar.

3.      Pour the juice on top of the sugar. Use a straw to mix it up.

4.      Ask your child what she thinks will happen to the juice when you put it in the freezer. Place the ice cube tray into the freezer.

5.      Periodically pull the tray out and take a look to see what’s happening. As the juice becomes semi-solid, insert a straw half into each cube.

6.      Put the cubes back into the freezer until they are completely solid.

7.      When they’re frozen, pop the cubes out and enjoy!
