From the current issue of FamilyFun: May the freeze be with you!Want to make an ice saber? Simple! Cut and fold a 3-inch by 4-inch gray felt rectangle over a freeze pop. Seal edges with fabric glue; clamp with clothespins, if needed. Slip the felt off the pop; add strips and dots. When the pop is frozen and the glue is dry, slip the holder back on.
