It’s basketball season and we are excited to watch the games. From professional to collegiate, there is something for everyone to enjoy which makes now a great time to prep your little ones on becoming true fans of the sport. What better way to do it than to put together a treats party with the Skittles I picked up during my latest Sam’s Club run, a DIY basketball court plus a printable basketball lesson. Our house is a full on sports house so it’s time our kids get on board. I can tell you this, since we are a blended household from different parts of the country, there is always smack talk happening. Let’s just say if the team is from the North East, I’m rooting for them. Regardless of the divide, we make basketball sweeter with this easy Skittles Popsicle Recipe.
To make Skittles Popsicles simply gather your main ingredients and your equipment and get started. Don’t forget to prep everything on a tray for easier cleanup. There will be spills especially if your kiddos jump in to help. Another quick tip is to use a measuring cup with pour spout to cut down on cleanup.
Once our popsicles were prepped, we popped them in the freezer and started our #SkittlesTourney basketball game. Little Z was all about bouncing the ball and sneaking skittles, while big Z was focused on cutting out labels for our lesson.
We focused on learning scoring terminology including jumpshot, 3-pointer, Slam Dunk and Free Throws. We also identified how many players were on the court for each team and the position they played. Of course we talked about offense versus defense, If you ask me the win comes from great defense above anything else. What do you say?
- Lemon-Lime Soda
- Popsicle Tray
- Wood Popsicle Sticks
- Pour 4-5 skittles in each popsicle mold.
- Fill with lemon lime soda leaving 1-2 inches of space.
- Place popsicle tray cover on top and insert sticks. Remember to leave about 2 inches of the stick out.
- Place in freezer for 4-6 hours or overnight.
Here is fun printable to get you started on your # SkittlesTourney basketball game time lesson:
You can find the 54oz bag of Skittles at your local Sam’s Club. Look for the in-store palette in the candy aisle.
