My kids love any type of frozen treat (especially during hot summer months). And while we do have some popsicles, ice cream sandwiches, and freeze pops, I also freeze gogurts, we make our own juice and pudding pops, AND I’ve started making chocolate covered banana pops (and bites) — which the kids think are so fantastic.

If you’re looking for a frugal, simple, delicious summer treat — give these a try!!!

After reading through most of the Little House on the Prairie books and the Kirsten American Girl books, Nora has been begging me to try making our own butter — “just like Laura and Kirsten did with their moms”.

So a couple weeks ago we made our own butter — and even I was shocked at how simple the whole process was. Plus, it was REALLY fun for the kids!

A couple months ago, the kids and I stumbled across a popsicle mold at the dollar store and I quickly snatched it up, promising homemade popsicles for a snack later that day.

Since then, we have enjoyed homemade juice pops as an afternoon snack on a VERY regular basis! They taste great on a hot summer day and take roughly 10 seconds to make!!
