Tis the season to get sick and when you have two little ones, getting sick is the norm.  So today's recipe/tute is for all the little sick kiddies who have a throat infection, sore throat, or a fever.  My son calls these "sick pops!"

These are so easy to make and require very little time or effort!  I love these because these are sized for little hands and little mouths.   Toddlers just can't eat the store bought popsicles fast enough (they do try very hard though!!).

Here's what you need:



Pour the Kool-Aid into the little cups.  Try not to spill it!



Fold a piece of tin foil in half and make a tiny cut crosswise.  Wrap the foil around the cup.



Insert a popsicle stick into the cut you made.  The tin foil helps to keep the stick straight.



Freeze for about 3-4 hours.  Remove and give to sick kid.  
Tip:  Make different flavours in case sick kids get picky

A great idea. My mum used to do it with orange juice so we'd get extra vitamin C

obviously though you could mix it up a bit for picky kids, but those are really soothing

These are a great idea... but they contain alcohol so NOT suitable for children.

well no, not as they are, but you can take out the alcohol and mix it up a bit for kids, but it's a good way to get some immune boosters into them when they're sick
