Supplies Needed to Make a Popsicle Bar
- Popsicles or Ice pops

How to Make a Popsicle Bar in Your Backyard
Start by adding ice to the disposable baking dishes.
Unwrap Popsicle ice pops and place individually in clear plastic cups.
Set inside the baking dishes and surround with ice. This will keep the ice pops cold during your party!
How to Serve the Popsicles
Serve the ice pops with lemon-lime soda for a fun, refreshing drink that will become more flavorful as the Popsicle melts.
The kids loved the combination of soda and popsicles. Every one seemed to eat it just a little different way which was part of the fun!
What Our Popsicle Bar Looked Like
Brightly colored popsicles sitting in clear glasses inside of ice made for a colorful display that brought the kids running.
You could strategically choose the colors of the popsicles you use if you want to match a theme or color scheme.
My favorite was the striped pops. They just seemed to have the coolest look on the popsicle bar and rapidly disappeared when the party guests saw them!
