Keep the little ones cool during the summer, without freezing tiny fingers! Great for pool parties or summer birthday party favors. These are a huge hit with the kids! Also available:Girly Ice Pop Holders and Knit Monster Popsicle Holders!
I designed these Monster Ice Pop Holders in the Summer of 2013 when my boys were nine and twelve, and they went wild for them! My daughter was just a baby at the time, but she is now five and it seems these ice pop holders are just as fun!
I’ve been meaning to move this pattern over here to my blog for a while now, but I just never got around to it… until now! (I did make the Girly Ice Pop Holders set too and that pattern will be transferred to this blog soon too!)
