Dino Pops

If it has the word "dino" in it, it must be good according to my two dinosaur crazed little girls, and if it's green, then it must be related to dinos, right? My favorite parenting trick of the moment: Trader Joe's "Green Plant Juice" which has fruit juice mixed with things like broccoli powder and spinach powder, frozen into popsicles. Although be warned, it's a bit messy.

Which is why it's best either enjoyed while running around the yard in a sprinkler, or in the bath tub. A very wise mom once taught me about the magic of "popsicles and a tub" and I have remembered it ever since. Not only is it the solution to even the most grumpy day, but it takes care of cleanup all by itself! Brilliant.

Brilliant! We usually do "popsicles on the deck" which has minimal cleanup.
