Materials Needed to Make DIY No-Drip Popsicle Holders for Fourth of July
- Popsicles – These Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Popsicles were exciting to my kids but also contained the bold colors of blue and red I was looking for in order for the Popsicles to feel patriotic. The icy, refreshing flavors include orange fury (Michelangelo), Cherry Crush (Raphael), Blue Raspberry Blast (Leonardo), and Smashing Grape (Donatell0). For more Popsicle flavors, visit the Popsicle website.
- Red, White and Blue Treat Cups – I found these particular ones at Michael’s Craft store, but if you are looking for an option on Amazon, I discovered these cute patriotic treat cups.
How to Make DIY No-Drip Popsicle Holders for Fourth of July
Making DIY No-Drip Popsicle holders for Fourth of July is super simple, even if you are feeding the masses. The first time I made them, I simply cut a slit in the bottom, stuck the Popsicle through and served them to the kids. You can definitely do that. My pictures with the kids reveal that they are adorable, and the kids really enjoyed them. That said, I think I like the idea of a lower profile solution, so I have included that option here as well.
Simply use an Exacto-Knife to cut a small slit in the center of the bottom of the cup. This slit should be about the size of a Popsicle stick. At this point, you can stick a Popsicle in and serve. However, if you like the idea of the smaller profile, simply cut the treat cup down to an appropriate height. All of this cutting can happen in preparation before the big day. It really doesn’t take much time at all.
Whatever your Fourth of July contains – pool parties, lake days, fireworks in the cul-de-sac, BBQ’s, parades or picnics, – I hope this fun Popsicle hack will make the celebration more festive, memorable and less sticky.
