If your kids love popsicles and water ice as mine do, I learned of a healthy alternative thanks to my daughter's new favorite show, Sid the Science Kid.
Using a dixie cup, place a cut of banana about 1 inch long in the bottom of the cup and stick it with a popsicle stick/tonsil ticklers thing. (This keeps the pop vertical). Fill the cup with orange juice (or any other juice that your child enjoys) and teach your child what is involved in freezing.
It's a great little science experiment for the littlest learners and the results are yummy.
In other news, Sid the Science Kid also provides the most annoying character on television in May, the glasses wearing annoy-bot. She's worse than Jillian Barbieri.....and that's bad.
I'll find some video of her soon.......
