You can use paper cups and plastic spoons instead of traditional pop molds. If you want the spoons to stand up straight, cover each cup with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, with the spoon handle inserted in the middle. If the ice pops don't easily come out of the cups or molds, run the bottoms quickly under cool water. Don't use hot water, or the pops will melt too much.
