Hi! I’m Tina from Mother’s Niche. Since I’m soon-to-be mother of 3 kids ages four and under, I thought I would post something for the little people today! It’s summer time and it’s hot, which might mean lots of popsicles at your house (it does at mine). However, toddlers really don’t need a full popsicle, and if you give them one, it GETS EVERYWHERE! So here’s a simple little recipe for  Easy DIY Toddler Pops  these homemade popsicles that are toddler-sized! Hint: they are super easy.

Easy DIY Toddler Pops



  • Plastic Shot Glasses
  • Toothpicks, or cupcake toppers (I got mine from Dollar Tree in the Baby Shower isle)
  • Yogurt, Juice, or whatever you want your popsicles to be made out of


Line your plastic shot glasses onto a cookie sheet. Fill them 3/4 of the way full. Throw them into the freezer and wait for them to start to set up, but not be frozen solid. This is when you will insert your picks (about 15-20 after you put them in the freezer).

Toddler Pops! Perfect size for the little ones

If you want two different layers of two colors (I did orange and pink), you will just repeat those directions. Pour in the first color and wait for it to firm up, then add the pick, then add your second color and put back in the freezer.

Once they are done, you can throw them into a giant baggie for easy access! So easy!
