I’m so happy summer is finally here and super happy to be a Popsicle Ambassador! So far it is proving to be a summer to remember. We finally got our patio set which means we’ll be spending lots of time in our backyard – BBQs, splashing in the sprinklers and playing in the sandbox. We’re also planning a few road trips including our first family camping trip!
With all these fun outdoor activities a great summer treat is essential and summer just isn’t summer without a yummy cold Popsicle. I remember growing up sitting by our pool as a child and taking a Popsicle break with my sister and friends.
Pinky had her first Popsicle when she was just over a year old and. I’ll never forget her first lick, she was at first startled by how cold it and was scared to take another. After some convincing I got her to try another taste and since then she’s been hooked. Now, almost 3 she takes it upon herself to open the fridge and grab a Popsicle. Now instead of convincing her to eat them, I’m having to tell her that a Popsicle is not a lunch or dinner but a treat, my silly girl!
So far, it’s been a very hot summer since we kicked it off last week and we’ve all made many trips to our freezer to grab a Popsicle.
Since July 4th is next week I decided to take Popsicle Firecracker’s and turn them into a fun and patriotic treat!
4th of July Uncle Sam Popsicle Toppers
We had lots of fun making them together and it was quick and easy.
Here is what you need:
- Box of Popsicle Firecracker
- Uncle Sam Hat (get the free printable here)
- Black pen or marker
- Red pen or marker
- Cotton ball or Q-tips
First print out your Uncle Sam hats and cut them out then put a little tape on the back. Next, create your beards using cotton or Q-tips. I found Q-tips to be a little easier and they make the perfect goatee with a little trimming. Once your goatees are done put a little piece of tape on the back of each. Now, you’re ready to take your Firecraker Popsicle’s out of the freezer. First, stick on your hat. Then you can draw on some eyes with your black pen or maker and a mouth with your red pen or marker. Lastly, stick on the beard. Viola! A easy, cute and patriotic 4th of July Popsicle treat!
Pinky had a blast with hers, she thought it was so funny and cute!
