Halloween is coming right up, and I am so excited! This is the first year that my 2 year old daughter, Kayleigh, is really old enough to grasp the concept of Halloween, for the most part anyway. Whenever I talk about Halloween with her, her eyes light right up and she shows a great interest in trick-or-treating and dressing up. She says she wants to be a “green dinosaur” this year. She’s just like me, always very specific in what she wants!
I’ve been trying to do some fun Halloween activities with her to get her excited for next month. She absolutely loves freezer pops, so I decided to make some gummy worm freezer pops at home. They’re a little on the spooky side to get in touch with the Halloween season, but not too spooky for a toddler. I didn’t want to gross her out completely with eyeballs or anything like that, but if your kids are older, you could certainly add those to your own freezer pops! Kayleigh thought the gummy worms were a great surprise!
Making these gummy worm freezer pops was so simple. I recently bought this awesome freezer pop mold on Amazon, and I adore it! We’ll certainly be making our own freezer pops for many years to come!
- 2 1/3 Cup of Your Favorite Juice (I used Welch’s Orange/Pineapple/Apple)
- 18 Gummy Worms
- Place 3 gummy worms in each freezer pop mold.
- Fill each mold with juice.
- Insert freezer pop stick.
- Freeze for at least 8 hours.
This is what the freezer pops look like as you’re eating them – gummy worms spilling out. Spooky, right?
What spooky treats will you add to your own freezer pops for the Halloween season?
