A Summer Popsicle Party

Today I hosted a little summer Popsicle Party for my kids and a few of their friends. It was SUPER hot outside, so the theme was perfect for all ages.

Back in July, I posted the invitations that I made for the party. I used card stock, popsicle sticks, and ribbon to make the Popsicle cards. They opened up to provide the invited guests with the party details.

Guests were invited to join us out back...

...where the kids could play on a slip-n-slide, in baby pools, make a popscile stick craft, and of course eat POPSICLES and other cool treats!

The snack table included watermelon, fruit kabobs, POPSICLES, frozen fruit bites, pretzels, and lemonade. I made little cups out of paper for the pretzels. The frozen fruit bites recipe is from an earlier post.

I made four different flavored popsicles for the kids to choose from: Strawberry Yogurt Pops, Mango Pops, Lemonade Pops, and Grape Pops.

I set up a craft table under a tent for the kids to be able to cool off and get creative. I pre-made simple POPSCILE STICK picture frames that each child could easliy decorate by coloring with markers and sticking fun summer-themed stickers on. Everyone seemed to enjoy the craft and it was easy enough for even my 20-month old to do.

Each guest left with a set of popsicle molds, a Popsicle recipe envelope, and a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pop.

We had a great day celebrating summer and playing with our friends!
