Popsicles are synonymous with summer, and for good reason—they’re refreshing on hot days, help hydrate kids and adults alike, and are easy to hold, even for tiny toddler hands. While we don’t judge store bought varieties, making them allows you to control the ingredients, and doubles as a kid-friendly activity. Here are a few recipes to try, divided into two categories—kid-friendly, and 21 & Over (aka spiked varieties). Plus, fun molds to use when making them!
