It is not cool when parents have to clean up their kids when they eat a popsicle and it drips all over their hands and clothes.
1. Make a small hole in the centre of a cupcake liner.
2. Slip the ice-cream stick through the hole before handing it to your child.
3. The cupcake liner prevents the ice cream from dripping all over your child’s fingers (pictured below).
If the cupcake liner is not sturdy enough, you can use more than one. You can also use a disposable lid.
