Popsicle Recipes for Kids
When you’re done playing with this delightful popsicle sensory bottle, why not indulge in some homemade popsicles?
Green Slimesicles are actually Green Popsicles with a secret! Hidden between pureed bananas and pineapple, these “Slimsicles” are a perfect way for kids to try spinach without even knowing it.
How Popsicles Were Invented
An eleven-year-old boy named Frank Epperson accidentally invented popsicles in 1905.
Epperson left a mixture of powdered soda and water with a stirring stick on his porch overnight during a cold winter night in San Francisco. The next morning, he discovered that the mixture had frozen around the stick, creating a frozen treat.
Epperson initially called his creation the “Epsicle.” Later, in the 1920s, he began selling the treat at an amusement park in Alameda, California.
The name was eventually changed to “Popsicle,” a combination of “pop,” referring to the sound the treat makes when pulled from the mold, and “icicle.”
The popularity of popsicles grew, and they became a widely enjoyed frozen treat around the world.
