Jello Popsicles – Perfect Summer Treat for Kids

Beat the heat this summer with these delicious and refreshing jello popsicles! They’re easy to make and perfect for a hot day. Plus, they’re a fun way to get your kids involved in the kitchen. Let’s get cooking!

Summer time is my favorite time of year. I definitely prefer heat than cold, even though I definitely am the type of person who sweats and gets miserable when I’m overheated. My kids also love the sunshine. They want to be outdoors 24/7 in the summer, and it can be difficult to find good ways to keep them cool.

If you’ve ever resorted to making homemade popsicles for your kids, I’m here to tell you that the BEST summer treats are JELLO POPSICLES.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 (3 oz) package Jell-O
1 packet of Kool-Aid
½ cup sugar
2 cup boiling water
2 cup cold water

I love using different colors and flavor combinations for these. They are so delicious. Sometimes I mix it up so the colors don’t match the flavor, and then I have the kids guess what they’re tasting. It makes me feel like eating popsicles is a brain game.

Combine Jell-O, Kool-Aid, sugar and boiling water together in a bowl or pitcher and mix well. Add cold water and then pour into popsicle molds, paper or plastic cups.

Set popsicle stick in – to keep popsicle stick straight, use tin foil across top. A great trick to keep them from getting knocked over is to set the cups into a cupcake tray. Easy!

Freeze for 4 – 6 hours or until solid.

This recipe makes 6 popsicles, but obviously you can use more Jello/Kool-Aid to make more.
