WFMW: Ice on a Stick

Well, that pretty much sums it up. Thanks for visiting...

Oh, you want more? All right...

My girls love to eat ice. I, however, do not have room to make ice in trays. I don't have a shelf in my freezer (why do they think it's a good idea to make freezers this way?) So I have everything stacked on top of each other this way and that. But like I said my kids like to eat ice, especially when it's 90+ degrees. They also don't like how cold the ice is in their hands. I don't like the fact that they keep spitting it out in their hands, have you ever seen a kid's hand. Yuck.

So the other day I had this fabulous idea. Really, it the stuff of a genius. I decided to make popsicles. Well, the kids didn't really like the popsicles, but then I thought, ice on a stick. I just filled the popsicle molds with water and froze them. Ta Da ice with a convenient holder. Kids don't get cold hands, I don't get grossed out and or find puddles of melted ice on the floor where it was abandoned. I picked my popsicle molds up at the Dollar Tree for...wait for it...a dollar! What a bargain. Sweet Girl loved it. And as an added bonus, if it melt too fast it just cools them off, no sticky mess to clean up. That's what works for me. To see what works for others visit Rocks in My Dryer.

That's so funny. My kids love ice, too. I should try this. I make pudding pops, but have never tried the ice alone.

That is so simply and yet, why didn't I think of it. Thanks.

Brilliant! What kid doesn't like popsicles???

I never even thought of trying just ice -- my kids will probably like that just as much as a popsicle.

Good luck setting up your chore bucket, too!:)
