The UK is set for one of the hottest days of the year this week, warns the Met Office, with even more warmer weather on the way.

While some people will be digging out their deck chairs to soak up the rays, others may be scrubbing down the remnants of last year’s BBQ and preparing for the first of many summer feasts.

One thing is for sure - as soon as the summer hits the one thing we are craving is a refreshing ice lolly. What could be more fun than making the cold treat yourself?

Ice lollies are not only tasty, but are also fun and easy to make - regardless of your age.

All you have to do is pour juice, or your liquid of choice - plus some decorations like fruit or sprinkles - into a mould, and leave to freeze, before tucking in.

There are a whole host of moulds, from different designs, sizes, and materials, to buy online to suit every age and budget.

For babies a miniature popsicle ice lolly to suck on will do the trick, and is said to be soothing especially when they are teething.

Older children may go head over heels for shaped designs, such as ice lollies that resemble their favourite animals or even a rocket.

For those who tend to get in a mess when slurping on their lolly may be best with a mould, which also has a straw for when your creation melts.

But the adults can also get in on the fun too, as there are classic style moulds to resemble Calippo ice lollies.
