Rainbow Pudding Pops!

It is day four of our 6 Days of Summer Fun and I thought it was time for a yummy snack:)


Today, I am sharing how to make


Just as yummy as regular pudding pops, but so much more fun:)

Rainbow Pudding PopsGather your ingredients, supplies, and helpers.

You will need a box {or two} of instant vanilla pudding, milk, food coloring, a couple of mixing bowls, a whisk, plastic or paper cups, and popsicle sticks. Have one of your helpers pour the pudding mix into your biggest mixing bowl.
Have another helper pour in the milk. Make sure to follow the directions on your package of pudding.
Once the pudding is mixed according to the directions, evenly separate it into 5 or 6 smaller bowls.
Add in red, orange, yellow, green, blue {and you can do purple...my boys didn't want it} food coloring to your divided up pudding. Then get a little help stirring until the pudding is the color that you want.
Spoon the different colors of pudding into your cups. Try to do smooth and even layers so that you will see a good rainbow on the sides of the pudding pop. Have one of your helpers put a popsicle stick into each of the cups of pudding. The pudding should be thick enough to hold up the stick...if not, cover the cup with plastic wrap and then put the stick through the plastic wrap and into the pudding.
Place the pudding pops in the freezer for a few hours. The time will depend on the size of your cups.
After they are completely set, take the pudding pops out of the freezer. Use your hands to warm up the sides of the cup so that the pudding pop will come out of the cup easily.
Then enjoy {& try not to make too big of a mess with} your SUPER cute and SUPER yummy treat!

6 Days of Summer Fun! Day Three: Make Your Summer Plans with a Welcome Summer Banner

Welcome to Day 3 of our 6 Days of Summer Fun with the Super Moms
This post is from Angela at Secretsofasupermommy.blogspot.com

I like for Summer at our house to be SUPER FUN, of course!
But I wanted to be sure that we were doing the important things as well (reading, making bank deposits in their savings accounts{and that means earning money by doing chores}, and working on goals (CubScouts, Piano, etc)! I made this banner last year to help be sure we were getting the things done that we needed to get done and mixing the right amount of FUN in with it!

First, I printed out little tags with all of the things we were planning to do this summer.

Here is my list:
Something Special! (this is great for those one time things)
Extra Fun (this was for when I added something on to one of our weekly activites)
School (they went to vacation bible school and a summer play school hosted by a local preschool)
Playdate (when a friend has us/them over)
Picnic at the Park
Storytime (lots of book stores host these)
Meet Daddy (sometimes we meet for lunch)
Going to a Movie (we love Regals free movie program)
Going out to Dinner
Leaving on a Trip!
Playgroup (there are several that we occasionally attend)
Roaring Springs (our local water park)
Bank (they get to make deposits and my husband matches it, this means they have to do their chores)
Having Friends Over
Working on Goals
Volleyballin’ (sometimes I meet up with friends to play)
Water Day (there are lots of fun pools, splash parks, and beaches on the lakes or rivers)

And here is how they look once I cut them, punched a hole in the top, and put a piece of jute rope through the hole (this makes it easy to pull them out of the envelope).

Next, make a pocket for them.

Fold a piece of cardstock and staple the sides. Make a label for the front and distress it with an ink pad, then punch a hole and tie on an 18 inch piece of jute rope or ribbon (tie it onto the wide ribbon when you get to that point).

Then, to make your envelopes:
My SIL, Jen, and I shared a box of these from Office Max. I think there was 500 in the box. I printed the days of the week, distressed the edges with an ink pad, and glued them on. Then I punched a hole in the top and hung it from an 18 inch piece of jute rope or ribbon.

At this point you could be done by just hanging the days of the week onto a thicker ribbon!

Or you can make the whole Welcome Summer Banner to make it SUPER cute.

Heres How:
First, get some chipboard shapes (they come in a "book" of 5) and some chipboard letters (or use vinyl).
I got mine at Michaels, but I heard you can sometimes find them at Archivers in the $1 section.

Mod Podge decorative paper onto them, turn them over and cut the excess paper off with an exacto knife.

Then sand them to get the edges nice and smooth. Distress them with an ink pad if desired. Glue the chipboard letters on to make your words.

Punch holes in the tops and hang onto a wide ribbon.

Leave enough room on the ends of your wide ribbon to hang. String one or two ribbons through your chipboard and tie it to the larger ribbon.

My kids LOVE to take the tags out and see what is in store for the day and the week!
Your kiddos will enjoy a Summer of Fun with an easy to follow plan!
