rainbow {pudding} pops

Want to make some happy kids? 
These were a big hit...found via Jimaie Marie...who found it on Secrets of a Super Mommy.

Simple and fun...here is how we made them...
Make vanilla pudding according to directions on the box.  Be sure to buy the BIG box of INSTANT pudding...I accidentally got the kind you have to boil...still worked but an unnecessary step...once you have it mixed...divide evenly it between five or six bowls...depending on how many colors you want.  They taste more rainbowy if you make them in rainbow colored bowls...that's a fact right there. :)
Add yay amount of food coloring...
Mix to get the color all the way through...
Starting with red...evenly divide between your cups.  I purposely used small cups and lots...I wanted smaller pops that the boys could handle easily...these are dixie bathroom sized ones...
Continue through all the colors...remember ROY G BIV (red orange yellow green blue indigo and violet) if you want a true rainbow effect. :) 
Add a popsicle stick and freeze.  My sticks may look huge and my pops small...but they sizes were perfect for my kids...they could hold on well and it wasn't too much icy coldness. 
The boys loved them.  It was great that they were made from pudding because they were less drippy than normal popsicles.  However...if we make them again...I will probably add some sort of flavoring (pineapple?)...because to me they were just a tad bland...you know, like vanilla pudding. :) 
But like I said...the boys were happy.

I didn't finish sewing Nothing but Net squares yet...but I am getting close...I am up to having 38 squares!!!

A huge thank you to the Fabric Shoppe for stepping up to sponsor all of the fabric needs for the quilt!

Ok...go make rainbows...or quilt squares! :)

These look yummy, love frozen pudding! Two more questions, if you don't mind. In you blog header, I'm wondering what those pretty things with sprinkles on them are and the cupcake with the fun frosting, do you have a recipe for it?

Those look so easy and cute! Have you ever made rainbow cake? Well, that's similar to this but with vanilla cake and it comes out rad! Thanks for the tips! Pudding is yummy and my girls will love it.

How fun! My little guy will be two next month and is starting to 'help' me in the kitchen! This will be such a fun project for us to do this summer!

SO much smarter making them smaller LOL! My boys actually only ate half of theirs the first day and then stuck them back in the freezer to finish the next day.Next time I'm definitely making them smaller :D

These look awesome! I can't wait to try these and the ice cube paints! I wonder if making the pops w/lemon pudding would make them seem fruitier (or rainbowy-er?)? :)
