1. Trovolo Dino Pop Molds
If your kids love everything T. rex-themed, they’ll happily gobble up healthy yogurt pops in fun dino shapes. As they chomp, the “fossils” hiding underneath will appear. Flexible silicone molds form the intricate dinosaur shapes, and they pull off easily once the pops are frozen. Try filling the molds with fruit juice or a combo of yogurt and granola for a fun spin on breakfast.
