Here are the Dripsters in use by my messy 18 month old (they come in star and bullseye/circle shaped!)
and the after
I was absolutely thrilled when I found out about Dripsters we have tried those bulky plastic cup type things that are suppose to catch all the melty mess but they never worked or broke or they were a pain to clean so Dripsters are perfect compact, i can even carry them with us to the park during the summer, they literally will soak up a whole popcicle and they are simple to rinse and reuse what more could you ask for!
You can buy Dripsters (<-- here at this link) for a very reasonable price $2.59 for a pack of 6!!!
