Real, icy cold ice pops are the best. However, sometimes a different sort of popsicle fun is in order. Here are some sweet, mostly melt-free choices for the kiddos.
Le Toy Van makes the most adorable play Ice Lollies, part of their amazingly cute Honeybake range of toys. Le Toy Van makes their toys with responsibly sourced materials, such as rubber wood from replanted forests and has an ethical process goal in place, meaning they strive for ethical pay, materials and workplace conditions.
Eat Drink Chic has an adorable DIY Paper Popsicle Memory Game (free download). The game idea and free download is very nice, and you can use recycled paper for it, however, I also like the idea of simply having your kids use paper scraps to design their own tasty paper ice pops – for a game like this, gift tags for presents or as birthday party decor.
*NOTE – instead of wooden sticks (not so sustainable) why not try making your sticks out of paper too?!
