Apple Sauce Icy Poles

The weather has finally warmed up a bit here and the rain has stopped, so the girls have been asking to make icy poles to enjoy outside.
Yesterday we were short on freezer friendly fruit so used some apple sauce we had in the cupboard.

Not only did it make yummy icy poles (the texture was nice and soft and they didn't drip easily) but the girls had lots of fine motor fun transferring the sauce from the jar to the molds using different sized spoons.

WE USED:

* icy pole molds
(ice cube trays or plastic cups would work just as well)
* apple sauce
(either pre made or if you have a heap of apples peel and cook your own)
* different sized spoons
* freezer

Spooning the apple sauce into the molds was a messy but fun activity.


Frozen ready to be demolished :)
