My kiddos LOVE popsicles. In fact, so does my husband Steve. (He sneaks them into the grocery cart just as much as the kids do. Ha!) I could take them or leave them….but since it’s been so hot here in Oklahoma, I’ve been craving them just as much as everyone else.
Something that’s frustrating about giving my kids popsicles though, is that they freeze their little fingers off. Generally when this happens, I grab a paper towel and wrap it around the base….BUT, I made them something that’s even more of a cold barrier. And can be used time and time again.
Yep, little Popsicle Cuffs.
And the verdict? They think they are the coolest invention! ;) Even though it’s pretty hot outside….they love using them! In fact, the other day while they were playing in this little blow up pool, I brought some popsicles outside for them and totally forgot about the cuffs. After a few seconds, their little fingers started freezing up and they begged me to bring out the cuffs. Ha….okay! :)
These little Popsicle Cuffs are made of thick fleece and really do keep the cold off their hands. And I made a set of 6 because spares are always a good thing!
I think I’m just as excited to use them for frozen Gogurts. Because that’s something else that freezes skin and ends up frustrating the little people of this household. :)
Now we have a stack of about 8 Popsicle Cuffs sitting in our silverware drawer, waiting to save the day, again and again!
All this will take you, is about 10 minutes….to whip up a whole stack. And to show you just how simple it really is…..here’s a quick video of the process! (CLICK PLAY)
