Creating homemade popsicles is super simple and fun. If you don't already have some, check out these favorite popsicle molds from Mamasicles. They're made of BPA-free plastic and come with a convenient funnel for filling and brush for cleaning.

Here are a few recipes that you can easily make at home. Get the kids involved (picky eaters included!) to make these special snacks or desserts.

You and the kids might want to get even more creative and invent some new popsicle recipes. Either way, you'll be creating fun memories together in the kitchen!

If you don't have popsicle molds, you can use regular ice cube trays. Notice these recipes don't include exact amounts for some ingredients. This is where your Kid in the Kitchen can help you with the fun scientific experiment of choosing amounts to create flavors, and tasting along the way before the finished product is poured into the popsicle mold to be frozen.

Here are the popsicle recipes!
