Fakesicles!!!


In celebration of Sophie's last day of preschool, I crafted these "pretend" popsicle favors!  Can you say "tasty take-home treats" 3 three times fast?!!!  I found these super cute "happy summer tags" on Tip Junkie and was instantly inspired!  Because I love packaging goodies as much as I enjoy making them, frozen ice pops weren't an option!  Instead, I purchased rocket molds and filled each one with candy!  I'm convinced that Sophie's playmates will totally love their chocolaty token!  Plus, the mold can be used to make "real" popsicles all summer long!  It's a treat that keeps on treating!  BONUS!

It has been a long time since I was a preschool Mom, but that is just about the cutest thing EVER!

So cute, but where did you get the rocket pop at? I have only the ice-cube-ish 8 in a tray kind. My head is spinning with good ideas for those.

I'm a ding dong! I bought a few 8 packs at Target for $1 each... in MY HEAD, they were "singles"! (Which is crazy since I've never even SEEN singles!) Anyway, I wasn't gonna let this set me back! I used scissors to trim each one out! Sounds way harder than it was! The plastic was thin and easily to cut. No sharp edges. Looks like they were purchased this way! Whoop! Whoop! :-)
