10 Cool Popsicle Ideas for Summer

Do you remember being a kid and running around on hot summer days slurping on popsicles? I do. I was usually barefoot with long tangled hair and skinned knees. Because that’s how I rolled. (For the record, that’s pretty much how I still roll.) Whether styled as impossibly adorable party invitations, crafted into a kid-friendly game of memory, or rockin’ out as pretty wall art, popsicles are where it’s at for me today. Here are 10 sweet popsicle-themed ideas for summer that are basically too cool to resist!
