As we can’t get to a cinema at the moment my son has been busy reading a new Finding Dory book this week, so when I suggested making some Finding Dory ice pops to him he was super excited, even though we had to order in ice pop molds especially as ours got lost in the move! These fun ice pops are super simple to make and are almost healthy?! Ok, well they’re certainly not 100% but they do count towards one of your kids five a day and that’s no bad thing to me!

Fish sweets (UK link)
Blue food colouring
I’m aware that food colouring is loads different in the US to what it is in the UK so some parents over there won’t touch it – if you’re in the US I’d love to know what you use that isn’t full of e-numbers!
How we made them:
Both my two year old and five year old wanted to help to make the ice pops and it was a fun after school activity for them! We poured the grape juice into a jug and then slowly added the food colouring, mixing it until it turned blue. The kids popped fish sweets into each of the lolly makers (with blue ones for Dory and orange for Nemo) and then they added the blue juice to each one. We popped them into the freezer to set and then after a couple of days they were ready to be eaten – yum! It was a hot day here in Cornwall so these melted pretty quickly but we had fun eating the grape ‘sea’ to rescue our little fishy friends. (If eating them counts as rescuing them?! It did round here anyway!)
