Freezer pops are easy to make and kids love them with gummy worms! Just two ingredients and these icy summer treats are ready to go!
I am so excited to be a part of The Joys of Boys “Summer Survival For Moms of Boys“ series! I’ve teamed up with a whole slew of bloggers to help you keep your boys (and girls) busy this summer. Make sure to check out the list at the very bottom of the post for more fun recipes, crafts, and activities to keep your clan busy all summer long.
Gummy worm freezer pops are fairly straightforward to make and if your boys are old enough, they could definitely make them without much help from you (BONUS!). My little guys is 5 so he helped out.
You need exactly two ingredients to make this icy treat- gummy worms and lemonade. You could also use any clear-ish juice or soda.
I bought the gummy worms at the dollar store because they are a little smaller and I could get more in to each pop. You will also need some kind of mold. I have an obsession with molds so I have several.
The process is easy – fill the mold with gummy worms. One dollar store bag got me about 3-4 pops. Make sure there is room to insert the stick! My son wanted to stuff them full of worms and then we didn’t have room for the sticks so we had to pull some out.
Carefully add the liquid. As I said, I used lemonade so we could see the worms, but whatever you want will work.
Insert the sticks and put those bad boys in the freezer. Mine froze for about 24 hours but I’m sure they were done sooner.
You might need to run the pops under a little hot water to get them to pop out of the molds.
My kids loved these! And they are so easy to make!
- 1 bag of gummy worms for 3-4 popsicles
- Lemonade or other clear beverage (lemon-lime soda; white grape juice; etc)
- Popsicle molds
- Fill popsicle molds loosely with gummy worms.
- Carefully fill the popsicle molds with liquid.
- Insert popsicle sticks and freeze!
- You may need to run the popsicle molds under hot water to release the popsicles from the molds.
You made it to the end – yay! Now check out the other fun ideas we have for keeping your boys busy this summer. Have fun!
