Summer Bucket List: Refreshing Watermelon and Green Tea Ice Pops

Summer. The most exciting time of the year for kiddos. No school, just freedom, swimming, playing outside, and sleeping in late.  The trend these days is to make a “summer bucket list” for {or with} the kiddos. All the fun things you want to do together while we have all that extra time together.

Summer bucket lists don’t have to be anything extravagant.  Kids will have fun doing anything and everything you have planned, hey, it’s not school, it’s not the ordinary hustle and bustle of the school week and work week, what’s not to love?  It doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg to do fun things with your kids either! Look for free or really cheap things to do around town… the city splash pad or spray park, the local snow cone stand, the mall carousel, that hometown ice cream shop, that park that’s a bit of a drive, but hey, it’s summer, the farmer’s market, and the bike trail.

Don’t forget all the fun things you can do at home too… play outside, make Alka Seltzer powered rockets, look for fossils/rocks, paint a watercolor picture, do a fun craft, plant a garden, catch lightening bugs, and create yummy things in the kitchen together.

If you’re looking for some inspiration, I’ve got a great little recipe to get you started. These watermelon green tea pops are so refreshing… I mean think about it. What says “quench your thirst” like a juicy watermelon and a glass of ice cold tea?  Why not put them together and FREEZE them? That’s what I’m talkin’ about!

I like them without sweetener but if your kids like things a bit more sweet, you can add a bit of sugar. I’ll share both ways so you can decide.  You’re going to love making these with your kiddos and what’s better is that no fancy equipment is required.  All you need are some ice pop molds and if you don’t have any, you can certainly use bathroom cups and plastic spoons or wooden sticks.
