Halloween Pumpkin Popsicle's


We have loved being ambassadors for Popsicle again this year. My boys just adore Popsicle's as most kids do & we always love coming up with creative ideas using Popsicle's. We made these Pumpkin Popsicle's the other day to celebrate Fall & Halloween coming up soon. My boys thought these were awesome & they take just a couple of minutes to make. We used orange Creamsicle's (my personal favorite)...

Fruit Leather
Green Pipe Cleaner

Start out by cutting off pieces of the green pipe cleaner & wrap around the stick of the Creamsicle. Then cut out the pumpkin faces from the fruit leather using kitchen scissors & place it on top.

See...we told you this fun Fall treat was super easy!

Rules for Being a Kid!

My boys have share lots of rules of being a kid in our previous Popsicle posts this year, but the most important rule to them is keeping yourself busy doing something that you love. My boys love to create. I am always amazed at the things they come up with using things we have on hand around the house or with food of course. 

It's so easy for kids now days to get lost in their video games & TV. There is so much more to explore & have fun with. Don't get me wrong...my boys are Mindcraft fanatics & that is another way of creating. However, it's all about balance & it's so fun to watch what the mind of a kid comes up with using crafts or building.  My boys will play with legos for hours & I just love watching their imaginations. Having a big imagination is what being a kid is all about with whatever you do.

Make sure to check out the Rules for Being a Kid Guidebook from Popsicle. There are so many awesome activities for your kids to look at. 


Don’t forget to visit Popsicle® via FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest and use the #PopsicleRules and #Contest hashtags to share YOUR family’s “rules”!

This post was created in connection with my appointment as an Ambassador in the Popsicle Blogger Program. Visit www.facebook.com/popsicle to join the conversation!

Fall Owl Rice Krispie Treat Pops


We created these fun Owl Pops to celebrate the beginning of Fall & my boys thought these were awesome!  They are easy to make & the kids will have fun helping make these.

Owl Fall Pops

Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats (pre-made)
Caramel Bits
Chocolate Chips
White Chocolate Candy Melts
Pretzel Rods
Chocolate Candy Coating
Chocolate Cookie Icing (Betty Crocker)
Leaf Sprinkles
Orange Candy Coated Sunflower Seeds
Lollipop Sticks

Start out by shaping the caramel bits into triangles using your fingers. Poke your sticks in the bottom of a rice krispie treat. Break a pretzel rod in half. Break the other half into another half. Cut the ends to fit on the side of the pretzel half using kitchen scissors. Attach with the chocolate cookie icing & then squeeze more icing on top. Add the leaf sprinkles on top & let that set for about 15 minutes. 

Attach the shaped caramel bits on the sides to look like wings using the icing. Attach on the white chocolate candy melts on the front for eyes & chocolate chips for the pupils. We pinched off a couple of caramel bit pieces for the ears. Attach the pretzel tree on the bottom using the icing & we also used orange candy coated sunflower seeds for the beak & feet. 


Let everything set for another 15-20 minutes before standing it up. Here is a side view....


These would also be very cute to make for Fall class parties at school!

Halloween Spider JELL-O Pudding Cups


We came up with these fun Spider JELL-O Pudding Cups the other day & these would be so fun to bring to Halloween class parties at school! These take just a few minutes to make & also a great edible Halloween craft the kids can make all by themselves.

Spider JELL-O Pudding Cups

Chocolate Pudding Cups
Googly Eyes
Black Pipe Cleaners
1 Piece of White Paper
Glue
Tape

Start out by lining up with black pipe cleaners on the pudding cup & add a piece of tape on top to hold them in place. Then shape the legs.  We cut little fangs from a piece of paper. Attach the fangs & eyes with glue.

That's it!  My boys loved these & I just might have to make these for my 4 year olds pre-school class!:)
