Spell Bound: Magical Potion
What’s Halloween without a yummy magical potion. This recipe is perfect for brewing up in caldron and serving at Halloween parties or just for a Friday Fun day activity!
- Equal amounts of 3 colored beverages with various sugar amounts (Kool-aid, Gatorade and G2 or another sugar free/low sugar drink are great options)
1. Fill each glass, cup or bottle or your drink container to the very top with ice.
2. Read each of your labels to see which drink has the highest sugar content, this will go in the glass first. **Tip the glass/container to the side and slowly pour your first layer until your glass is ⅓ full.
3.Choose your second highest sugar content and pour very slowly ensuring you are pouring over an ice cube to avoid mixing. Fill to ⅔ full.
4. Repeat with your remaining layer. 5. Serve and enjoy!
BOO! Pencil Toppers!
With colder weather coming, what’s better than a fun fall craft inside! These spooky pencil toppers are perfect for her to spice up her pencil box and have a little fun learning a new skill! You might remember a few months ago Corinne shared a picture of her and her youngest daughter sewing on a rainy Saturday afternoon.
