March has come in like a lamb in our part of Montana. With St. Patrick's Day, and Easter just around the corner, spring is in the air. And, thanks to an idea from Tina Houser's More Than Cookies & Punch, rainbows our in our cups.
Houser suggests freezing colorful sports drinks in ice cube trays, and then crushing the ice, with a blender, before putting it into cups. We used freezer pops, and a hammer, but it worked pretty much the same.
It took one freezer pop per layer, for two juice size glasses. We found letting them thaw a few seconds, before hammering them, kept the packages from bursting open.
A juice glass full was plenty of sugar, I wouldn't suggest going any bigger. I think if we try this again, I'll see if we can't come up with a juice alternative.
But, the kids were thrilled with their treats, and we counteracted the sugar with a salad lunch. Plus, with the beautiful weather they can run the rest off - outside.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
