As a mommy of ten I love creating delightful childhood days for my children. Creating memories of homemade popsicles on the front porch or running through the sprinklers as we water the garden in the evening. I love to hear them giggle, play, explore and live here on the farm. So often I say to myself, “perhaps today will be a memory they carry for the rest of their lives.” It will be fun to listen to their stories as they get older and hear the things they held close. For me it will be the simple moments of bubble blowing, lightening bug catching and popsicle making. It will be the times I chose to sit and hold a child instead of plow through that never ending “to do” list. It will be the times we worked together, grew together, learned together… loved together! These are delightful days!
So, in honor of childhood days and the conclusion of our “Growing up ‘Green’” I am giving away one of our favorite popsicle molds.
The Tovolo 80-8003Y Yellow Groovy Ice Pop Molds, Set of 6 will be the prize this week! These molds are fun because they are large enough to add a slice of fruit to the mold. I’m not an expert in popsicle molds. These are simple molds that we’ve found, used, and enjoyed! I actually have a variety of sets with all types of shapes. The children enjoy the shape of the popsicle almost as much as they enjoy the flavors.
A book that we’ve been enjoying this Summer is, Ice Pop Joy by Anni Daulter. You can see it HERE on Amazon. It’s filled with a varitey of recipes (great tasting ones I might add!), photos, and how to instructions! I would encourage you to buy her book for yourself I know we’ve enjoyed it and will refer to it for many summer days! You might also want to check out the Ice Pop Joy Facebook page
