Partner sticks... Each has the name of a famous character... Eg Aladdin and Jasmine or Sully and Mike Wazowsku. Kids pull a stick and when all sticks are out, kids find matching character. Love this way to randomize pairs.
1) Soak popsicles sticks in almost boiling water for 30 minutes (this keeps the sticks from bobbing to the top when freezing) 2) Fill a pitcher with chilled rootbeer and cool further in the freezer for 10 minutes 3) Fill molds with rootbeer, a spoonful of vanilla ice-cream, additional rootbeer, and another scoop of ice-cream. 4) Remove excess foam 5) Insert sticks 6) Freeze overnight 7) Place popsicle mold under warm water for 15 seconds to remove popsicles
