The longer warmer days heralding the spring can only mean one thing in my house …..rainbow popsicles. I started making these with my daughter last year and for her they are just short of magic. This is a simple project which is very kid friendly and always a big hit.
You will need:
Popsicle Forms or small plastic cups and popsicle sticks
- Mix the pudding according to the directions. For the sake of my sanity and my daughters need for instant results, we typically use the instant boxed pudding. Although a homemade vanilla pudding would work as well.
- Once the pudding has set up to a loose conistency, select the colors you would like to use and divide the pudding equally into smaller bowls. Mix a few drops of food coloring, I used 4 drops per bowl.
- Once the colors are completely mixed in you can then start to layer them into your chosen popsicle form. I used these monster popsicle forms but we have also used small disposable plastic cups and popsicle sticks, which worked just as well.
- Then put them into the freezer to set. For best results leave them in overnight, even when after dinner your child insists that they are “really ready to eat”.
- Run them under a hot tap for a few seconds to release them from their form.
- Take time to enjoy the small moments in life that go by so fast.
