How to Make Rainbow Popsicles

Updated on April 27, 2009

Everyone loves popsicles, whether they're five or fifty years old. You can buy a box from the local grocery store or the local ice-cream man, or you can get creative and make your own. Not only is it super cheap, but it can also be super fun. Kids love to create things, especially when they involve a rainbow of colors. Whether your children are small or big, everyone can participate. Rainbow pops not only make tasty after school treats for kids, grown-ups will enjoy them as well – particularly those who like to munch on things without consuming too many calories!

Rainbow Popsicles

If you're creative and would like to make a gorgeous popsicle of rainbow colors, it's a lot easier than you might think. It's more time consuming than traditional popsicles, but most of that time is spent waiting on the water to freeze, so don't avoid these just because you think they require too much effort. They're easy to make and delicious to eat -- and kids will love them!

What you need:

  • Kool-aid in a variety of colors. You could choose a proper rainbow of colors, or you might want to choose two or three colors that have special meaning. For example, school team colors, the colors of a certain country's flag, the colors of a certain holiday, etc.

  • Popsicle molds. You can buy these in specially made shapes, or you could use something as simple as paper cups.

  • Popsicle sticks. Again, you could buy specially designed sticks, or the traditional type we all know and love.

How to make your rainbow popsicles:

  1. Make your batches of koolaid.

  2. Mentally section off your popsicle containers from the outside by imagining a line for each section. These markers will indicate the start of each new color, so you'll want to know in advance how thin or wide you want each stripe to be.

  3. Fill the first section of each container with one color and then stick them into the freezer.

  4. Once the kool aid is capable of holding a popsicle stick, take the containers out, put the sticks in and add the second color. When finished, stick them back in the freezer.

  5. When the second section is fully frozen, remove the containers, add the third color and re-freeze.

  6. Repeat the last step until all the colors are added.

  7. Remove fully frozen rainbow pops from their containers and enjoy!
