Tia has been into a new show called "Sid the Science Kid". It's actually kind of cute. Every day Sid has a question, and his teacher does some sort of experiment or activity to help him find the answer. Last time we watched they learned all about freezing and melting. The teacher showed the kids how to make "ice pops" by putting a slice of banana in the bottom of a dixie cup, sticking a popsicle stick in the banana to help hold it up, then filling the cup with juice.
Tia had been talking about this 'experiment' ever since, so we did it at home. We made them in the morning and I assured Tia they would be ready by the time she woke up from her nap. Sure enough, they were a big hit, even with Gia who really doesn't like popsicles. She liked these so much she even let me take her picture!
As you can probably see our sticks were more the size of tongue depressors but it's all I could find at Target. They worked out just fine.
