Today I had my little group meet up with some fellow mommies. We had some snacks, played outside (it was quite hot at 83°), hunted for Easter eggs, and played in the sand box. But, I think the most successful part was the frozen DIY Easter egg popsicles I made for the kids. I only used plain fruit juice, but when frozen in an egg, everything tastes better apparently. The best part is they are relatively simple to make.
Materials to make DIY Easter egg popsicles:
First, tip the eggs upside down and poke three holes in the bottom. Two of these holes are for letting the air escape when filling the egg, the third one should be in the center of the bottom. Make this center hole bigger using the large nail. You will need it to be as big as the popsicle/sucker stick. Once that is done, and you have your egg carton full of “hole-y” eggs, use the piping tip to fill each one until almost full, and then poke in the popsicle stick and place in the freezer until firm (I froze mine overnight).
When you are ready to eat them, let them sit out for a second, or hold the top part in your hands to warm it up and open the egg on up. The kids enjoyed them right out of the plastic egg, and when they got down to the bottom part, the eggs easily slipped on out of the “shell” so they could finish the rest.
