These Lightsaber Popsicles sleeves have been the perfect way to keep my boys’ hands warm while eating their popsicles and have also helped us to cut back on the rolls and rolls of paper towel we had been using with my youngest boys since they wouldn’t hold a cold popsicle.  I was browsing around Amazon one night and found these Light Saber Freezer Pop Cozies and thought we could definitely make something similar.  If your kids are like mine, summertime means buying an endless supply of popsicles of one variety or another.  My boys love OtterPops but there are so many different varieties of ice pops that you can buy and freeze.

What kid (or adult!) wouldn’t want to turn their popsicle into a lightsaber popsicle?  And these are SO easy to make and don’t require any sewing.  Yay!

Supplies needed:

And that’s it.  I have a love/hate relationship with my glue gun because I pretty much burn my fingers each time I use one, but I was willing to risk it to make my boys’ day.

To make, cut the grey felt into 3 1/2″ X 4″ rectangles.  You could probably do 4 x 4 squares as well and make them a little bit bigger around.

You can tell my boys loved these!

And if you don’t want to make your own, you could always purchase some. I found these Light Saber Freezer Pop Cozy on Amazon.

Or…if you want to make actual lightsaber popsicles, we absolutely LOVE our Lightsaber Popsicle Molds.  We can just add juice or punch and make a variety of popsicles and my boys think they are the coolest. 🙂
