Popsicles are synonymous with summer, and for good reason—they’re refreshing on hot days, help hydrate kids and adults alike, and are easy to hold, even for tiny toddler hands. While we don’t judge store bought varieties, making them allows you to control the ingredients and doubles as a kid-friendly activity. Here are a few recipes to try, divided into two categories—kid-friendly and 21 & Over (aka spiked varieties). Plus, fun molds to use when making them!

Kid-Friendly Popsicles

Unicorn Popsicles from Craft Box Girls
Orange and Cream Popsicles from The Spruce Eats
