30 Things my kids should know about me *UPDATE: I’m blown away by the response to this series.

Use a scalpel and ruler to gently score along the dotted lines. Before you start cutting out your popsicles, keep in mind that you should be as precise as possible with your cutting as you want all your popsicles to look as identical as possible from the back.

Attach double-sided tape to the left tab and also to the top rounded part of your popsicle (to avoid a gap at the top).
