- First, collect your clean, fresh snow! Ideally, it’s best to catch the snow before it even hits the ground by using a large, clean bowl.
- Once you’ve gathered the snow, it’s time to get creative. Add juices, fresh fruits, sprinkles, or even pudding to your snow.
- Once you’ve created your mixture, add it to popsicle molds (or ice cube tray, disposable cups, empty yogurt containers, etc.)
- Don’t forget to add your popsicle sticks and write your name on them so you remember which one is yours!
- Now, find a safe but cold spot outside to let your ice pops freeze.
- Enjoy your tasty treat!

Keep it Simple
- Not cold enough for making popsicles outside? No clean snow? Stay indoors and use a freezer and water to make your treat. Use Jell-O to make a “no-drip” popsicle!
Take it Further
- Protein is important to keeping you fueled in all weather, but especially in the winter! How can you add protein to your popsicles to make them a hardier winter snack?
