How To: Watermelon Popsicles (3 Months in the Making)
As you can imagine, this is probably the simplest of all children's cooking activities. It requires only a watermelon, a bowl, big mixing spoons and popsicle molds. We found some popsicle molds at Ikea last year that have held up surprisingly well (not like the uber desk we bought in the same trip). I also have to recommend bathing suits, because it gets uber messy. So some "smash, smash, pour, smash, cry, share, time out, smash, lick" time later we had our tasty treat.
