Whether refreshing yourself on a hot summer day, or soothing a sore through, one of the best reliefs is an ice cold popsicle. If you’re sharing them with kids, or a messy eating adult, you may find these refreshments require a full hose down afterwards. Not to mention all those stains you’ll need to scrub out of clothes later!

By simply buying a popsicle making kit (they’re often just found at the dollar store) make your own popsicles using Jell-o! The gelatin will keep the popsicles in shape, and less drippy. You can also have fun with this by adding in sprinkles, gummy candies or fresh fruit for an added touch. Just prepare your gelatin mixture (like Jell-o) and pour into the popsicle makers, freeze, and you’re ready to go!
