Works For Me Wednesday

Today I am participating in a blog carnival hosted by Rocks In My Dryer. Every Wednesday people from all over the internet post practical tips on their blog and link them back to her blog. There are lots of great tips on her site every Wednesday so please, go check it out!

Here’s what works for me.

My kids love, love, love, LOVE popsicles and in the summertime I indulge them almost everyday. What’s a hot sticky day without a cool sweet Popsicle? Almost as much as they love popsicles, I hate the drippy mess they make so last summer I got smart. I took one O-Cel-O sponge for each of my kids and cut a slit in the center of it. Now when the kids want a Popsicle I wet one of these sponges, put the stick end of the Popsicle through the slit in the sponge and hand them their treat. In addtition to being a cheap, reusable and very effective drip catcher the kids also have something to wipe their hands and mouths off on when they are finished eating. Then they toss the stick in the trash and the sponge in the sink.

The kids are happy. Mom is happy. Works for me!

Aw, man, that is such a GREAT idea! I almost never do popsicles because of the mess - maybe I will do more now. Thanks!

Truly genius!

Fun idea! I tend to stick with Otter Pops for that very reason - less mess. Sometimes, however, you really need a good fudgesicle on a hot sunny day. :)
