Freeze Pop Holders ~ Keep Those Little Hands Warm & Clean

Last year my sister bought a set of freeze pop holders from Leaps & Bounds and we thought they were the coolest thing. When planning my little guys carnival birthday I wanted to include one for each kiddie in their goody bag and made these quick, easy and inexpensive alternatives.

All you need is some scrap fleece and some thread and your kiddies little hands will be nice warm and clean when enjoying their next freeze pop!Cut a piece of fleece 5 inches long by 2 1/2 inches wide. You can makes these any size but this seems to fit a standard icy pop pretty well.

I used pinking sheers for a little design along the edges; however a regular cut would work as well.

Sew a straight line down each side and across the bottom. {It literally took me longer to set up my machine than to sew ~ so easy!}

Pop in a freeze pop and let your little one go to town! When they get messy, pop them in the wash and re-use. If you missed my post yesterday about making your own healthy freeze pops you can find it here. Enjoy!
