The “Drippy Popsicle” Cure & Giveaway

popsicle drip 005

When your kids ask you for Popsicles, do you cringe at the thought of the mess?

You watch them as they lick their popsicles ,as if they will last an eternity, then the sweet sugary blue liquid drips down their hand, then forearm and lastly a pretty blue drip forms off the tip of their elbow?

Dripppppp onto their white t-shirt!!!

I know we have all experienced it.

We have all ripped our kids shirts off the instant it happens and spray it down with a stain wash.

Welp, I have a cure, at least a band-aid.

Take a tin cupcake liner and place it on a cutting board. Cut a tiny slit in it with a sharp pointy knife.

Then put the stick of your uneaten popsicle into the slit.

Viola, a drip catcher!!

Pretty genius!

Here is a little tutorial for your average slow popsicle licker and another one for your REALLY SLOW popsicle licker!

AVERAGE POPSICLE LICKER TUTORIAL

You need a tin cupcake liner, a cutting board and a pairing knife.

Popsicle Drip

Cut a small slit in the middle of the tin

See the little slit? That is where you put the popsicle stick.

TUTORIAL FOR YOUR SLOW POPSICLE LICKER

You will need 2 tin cupcake liners, 1 cotton cosmetic round, cutting board and pairing knife. The cosmetic round will absorbe anything that may leak past the 1st liner!
Cut slits in both cupcake liners.

Popsicle frip 003

Fold the cosmetic round in half and cut a small slit

Popsicle drip 004

The cosmetic round goes between the 2 tins. To make it easy to put on the popsicle stick…
put on 1 tin, the the cosmetic round and then the 2nd tin.

Might sound like a lot or work to eat a popsicle, but it takes more time to drive to the store and buy your kid a new t-shirt :)
