It seems like it was just the other day when I published a post describing Popsicle’s call for readers to submit their favorite rules for being a kid. They were going to take the best submissions and turn them into a fun guidebook. As it happens on occasion, time flew by. That call for submissions was a month ago. We’ve eaten our fair share of Popsicles since then.

The submissions were carefully reviewed and 40 of them were selected to be in the guidebook. And now just in time for summer, that guidebook is ready!

Popsicle Rules For Being A Kid Guidebook

The Rules For Being A Kid Guidebook is lots of fun. The rules range from sweet and sensitive to just downright funny. Here are two of my favorites!

Popsicle Rules For Being A Kid Guidebook

Some kids love playing in sprinklers. Others hate showers. Some are so busy packing fun into their days that they don’t want to waste time doing nonsense like getting clean! They want more time to play and eat Popsicles, not bathe!

Popsicle Rules For Being A Kid Guidebook

This should be a rule for everyone, not just kids. Enough said.

Do your kids have their own rules? Please visit PopsicleRules.com and check out the guidebook and see if there are some rules that your kids have in there! If you download the guidebook you’ll also get Popsicle-themed activities, coloring pages and craft ideas too.

Our rule is that we never spend a $5 bill. We save all of them in a jar, and deposit it into a savings account for him when he gets older. I know this sounds to strict but he loves saving his 5’s and sometimes tries to save other bills, too!

My one rule I have for my son is that he must never say anything ugly to any little girls his age. If he ever hears any other person call a little girl fat or ugly, he always goes up and tells them how beautiful they are. We talked about how words can hurt people especially little girls. (my son is 10)

“Don’t Judge a Book by it’s Cover” is a huge rule in our home! between commercials and social media videos, its so easy for kids to become brainwashes that they are supposed to look a certain way and I don’t want them to judge others this way!
