Life is never as easy as Pinterest makes it look, is it?
I saw this post today and thought: “Oh! I’ll make that! Easy-peasy.” Well, like most things, it took some determination and some conversation and some adjusting … wait … that’s what ALL good things require!
So, if you’re looking for something fun that you can do with your kids (notice I did not say healthy, I said fun) then give this a try. We did it a few times before finally figuring out what made it look cool.
Turns out, there really is a “science” to it!
STEP ONE: Pour fruit juice over ice. Sorry, but it has to be the sugary kind. That pesky “good for you” stuff won’t work for this treat. The sugar weighs more. So it needs to be sugary to stay on the bottom of the cup.
STEP 2: Use a spoon to diffuse the blue drink (we found, after three tries, that a mixture of Gatorade, water and one drop of blue food coloring for show worked best) to carefully add the second layer to your drink.
STEP THREE: Same thing—carefully pour the diet whatever (we used Sprite Zero) on the top. Go slow!
STEP FOUR: Enjoy! You did it! Be sure to talk to your kids about “why” this works
Happy Independence Day! God Bless America!
Have Fun With Your Kids,
