It’s officially summer, and the kids are home. They love their snacks even when they’re not in school. Of course, a favorite kid’s treat is a popsicle. Popsicles are fantastic. They come in different colors and flavors. Plus, they’re easy to carry. But sometimes, those little hands and fingers can’t keep a firm grip on their frozen snack. When kids can’t grip their popsicles, accidents can happen.

In a TikTok video by mom and content creator @athomewithshannon, she shares her popsicle hack. It’s a simple remedy for preventing spills and stains. Mom will want to hear this information. We wish we'd known about this sooner.
