Cool Down on July 4 with these easy-to-make at home Popsicle recipes

By Trudi, Reference Assistant

A perfect way to cool down on a hot day is to make popsicles!  Luckily, our Hobbies and Crafts Reference Center resource is a great place to find popsicle recipes.

Finding them is simple! I searched for popsicles in the search bar and then clicked on the third selection: Let’s Get Poppin’! If you click on the PDF Full-Text link on the left-hand side, it will bring up the full-text version of the article. 

There are several kid-friendly popsicle recipes to try. My family chose to make the Strawberry Lime Pops.  With only 4 ingredients, they were super easy to make.  We ended up substituting honey for the Agave nectar, and it made the perfect treat.  The most difficult part was having the patience to wait for the popsicles to freeze!
