Back to School with Popsicles! *Giveaway closed* #PopsicleMom

popsicle (3)

My kids are officially in their first week back to school and so far are having a wonderful week! They are loving their teachers and the other students in their classes. We are excited to get back to a new school year!

I figured that I would surprise the kids after school with a fun little Popsicles play date with our neighborhood kids! They had so much fun and it was a tasty treat that cooled them off (since it’s still quite warm here in Southern California).

I went to the store and purchase a few different flavors for the kids to choose from. What I love about Popsicles is that they have so many different variety’s to choose from. There is something for everyone!

I knew my Sarah and husband would love the cream bars, and Samantha and I the Fudgsicles.


Popsicles make such a fun and easy after school treat for the kids after a long day at school!Plus the Fudgsicles are only 45 calories!
