Easter Egg Popsicles

filed under

  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.

DIY Easter Egg Popsicles

Materials to make DIY Easter egg popsicles:

Fruit juice
Eco Friendly Easter Eggs 
Lollipop sitcks
A large nail and thumbtack
Small funnel or piping tip to fill the eggs

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).

DIY Easter egg popsicles

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.

If you think these are fun you should check out some of my other popsicle ideas like these colorblocked fruit juice pops!

    Where do you get the sticks?

  5. Kara says:

    I got mine in the baking section at Hobby Lobby, but any craft store or even the baking section of your local grocery should have some lollipop or cake pop sticks. That is what I used because they were skinny.

  6. Sonya says:

    I love the idea. Unfortunately for me I tried to make them tonight for our preschool egg hunt tomorrow and they just didn't work. The eggs I had bought had tiny holes in both ends and many of them didn't seem to make a tight seal around the edges when closed so they leaked when filled. I am definately going to experiment and buy some different brands of eggs to find the right ones because I really like the idea.

    You could put clear tape around the seal area, and them remove it before serving.

      And over the holes. Thank you for the info I didn't know that they made them with holes anymore. I don't have my Grandkids and great grandkids for Easter egg hunt's anymore. Too scattered but their parents and some of the parents around here will love it.

  8. Kara says:

    Sorry they didn't work out for you. You will have to make sure to get eggs without holes and just make your own on the bottom only. I didn't have any issues with the eggs leaking, so I think you just have to find the right eggs. The ones I used were the cheap $1 for a dozen ones at the grocery store ( HEB, for those in Texas) that were attached by that little piece of plastic and had no holes.

    I love this!It's a must try for this weekend

    Going to make these for Easter for my 6 little girls & their Cousins….such a great idea!!! Love it!!

  12. Amanda says:

    I bought those same eggs at HEB! Thank you for the fantastic idea! Cool! 🙂

  13. graham's mom says:

    kids will love it! You are so awesome!

    I wonder if the top whole would be enough to create the air whole. This would make the perfect way for it to catch all the drippings while they eat them.

  15. kat says:

    made these yesterday with my kids! posted your link on my blog! hope that was okay! Happy Easter!

    What a fabulous idea! Pinned for next year!

    Very cute! How full did you fill them? Thanks!

  18. Kara says:

    I used a frosting piping tip as a funnel and just slowly poured the juice in the closed egg until it was close to the top.

  19. You use a funnel to fill those eggs, right?

  20. Kara says:

    Yes, I actually used a small piping tip as a funnel as shown in the photo. But you could use a regular funnel if you have one small enough.

  21. Anonymous says:

    How much space did you leave at the top? Thanks.

  22. Kara says:

    Just enough so that when you insert the stick it doesn't overflow. Not sure how else to describe it. Maybe a pea size space?

  23. Those are so great! I wish I had seen this before Easter but I'm pinning for next year.

    I wonder if Sonia is from canada. We may have different regulations up here. Small items like that have to have an air hole in them for suffication/choking purposes. Same thing with pen and marker lids. They are a choking hazzard, and have to have a hole from the manufacturer in them. All the eggs I looked at have a hole in either end as well. You could use a hot glue gun to close up the holes though.

    these are great,, I use a children s medicine syringe to fil them its a lot easier than a funnel or piping bag tip,,well, it was for me anyways…lol

    What about all the chemicals in those cheap plastic eggs (like BPA?). Cute idea, but I personally would not want to do this.

  28. Kara says:

    About the BPA, while it is real and a threat, if you research it, BPA leaches from plastic when it is heated up. The higher the temperatures, the more BPA that is released from the plastic. So, the contrary is also true. The colder the plastic gets the tighter the BPA molecules are held within plastic and are therfore not leached into the frozen fruit juice. Just a little info for those concerned. (coming from a former Chemical Engineer)

    Has anyone tried to use the Jello Jiggler Egg molds? You would have to remove the pops from them to serve but they have a hole already and sit flat.

    As I was painstakingly filling the eggs with the little funnel by 13 year old daughter said, "Hey, mom why don't you fill the bottom first and then close the egg and funnel the top."

    I must say she is brilliant! LOL

  39. Anonymous says:

    Alma Gonzalez & Patti: I used a thumbtack to poke a hole (2-3 times in roughly the same spot) in the plastic egg then used the lollipop stick and shoved it through those thumbtack holes.

  40. Anonymous says:

    I found that using a candy "melting/decorating" squeeze bottle, like Wilton's, made the filling part super easy and mess free. Way easier than using a funnel! You can find those squeeze bottles at Michael's or Walmart.

  41. SpunkyDIY says:

    disappointed 🙁 I already had a ton of eggs so I bought some juice to try this and all of my eggs had holes in both ends 🙁 maybe I'll try to pickup some from dollar store or just wait for next easter….thanks for posting though – very creative!

  42. Nadz says:

    I just tried this, hope it works out! My eggs had holes in them (I'm in Canada), but I just taped them with clear tape that I'll take off when I'm ready to serve. My son is so excited to try these, thanks for the great idea!!

  43. I have never seen these before, and I absolutely love the idea! I can't wait to try this with my kids!

  44. Andrew says:

    Too small for adults LOL

  45. I absolutely love this idea!!

    How do you poke the nail through without cracking the plastic

    Unfortunately these did not work for me. Mine leaked out of the seam line and made a big mess.

  48. Unknown says:

    1) I think this is a fabulous idea. Often store bought popsicles have so many additives and do much sugar that they really are pretty "bad" for our kids. Doing this allows us moms to have more control over what is going "into" the popsicle. It also allows for control over the SIZE of their popsicle. How many times has your child asked for a popsicle only to tell you once they are half done with it that they don't want anymore? 2) The piping tips could work really well for filling them, but I know I also have an extremely small funnel that came with a set of tubes of glitter I bought for craft projects with my daughter. I bet it would also work. Sometimes it's just a matter of looking through what you have on hand. I bet the kids would LOVE helping to make these too!!!!

    Is their such thing as bpa free Easter egg just for piece of mind? I know bpa is typically only released with heat. However wouldn't it be nice to have something labels food safe? Silicone or something….? However I like the idea of the bottom part being a drip catcher…and the top being a lid if a small child doesn't finish one.

    What kind of juice did you use? What Recipes hat your kids love?

    What about the 2 extra small holes? When it starts to melt do they not leak out of these holes?

    • I used Easter eggs with no holes. If you can only find eggs with holes, you can use a dab of hot glue to seal them up on the outside. If you are talking about the two pin holes I made for the air to release when filling, then no, the Popsicles were eaten quickly enough that they did not leak.

    That is such a good idea

    Great ideas!!

    […] than packing them away we are making Egg Pops, a “cool” idea from Kailo Chic using our plastic eggs and just plain fruit […]

    So easy and creative.

    They sell eggs with holes in them but how do u stop the juice from leaking out?

    • kailochic@hotmail.com says:

      I used eggs without holes. But if you can only find ones with holes, then you can put a dab of hot glue on the outside of the egg to plug the holes.

  60. Anita says:

    I cannot find anywhere eggs with no holes…suggestions?

    • kailochic@hotmail.com says:

      I link to some in my post I think. But you can always use a dab of hot glue on he outside of the egg to plug up the hole.
