Right before Easter I got sick and so our family gathering was postponed. Ooooh how I hated to do that, as it’s so hard to get everyone together in one place all at the same time! Boo! Anyway, we were able to re set a date and had so much fun! I wanted to make everything extra special, so I created a fun How to Make Slushy Bar for Kids!
I love to create special memories and food for our gatherings, you know… something a little original and unique, so this time I made a fun Slushy Bar for Kids, but the grownups enjoyed it too! It was such a hit that I we’ve done this several times since! It’s amazing how something so simple can make such an impact on your guests.
I’ve since discovered TONS of different flavors and syrups for our Slushy Bars! I’ve added those to the list of ingredients so you can see what will fit your families needs best too!
I thought of several ways that I could use Kool-Aid Easy Mix..aww but I’m getting ahead of myself! Here is how I made my
Quick Links for this Page
How to Make a Slushy Bar for Kids
- Crushed Ice/shaved ice
- 1/4 cup or less Kool-Aid Easy Mix ~ this was easy and delish
- Hawaiian Shaved Ice Flavoring ~ but this was even tastier!
- Time for Treats ~ this was pretty good but very sweet!
If you don’t to mess with any of the juices, you can always use these cool Zoku Slushy makers. They are pretty cool!
For you Slushy Bar set out different flavors or syrups/flavorings/cups/straws…Help the little ones but let the bigger kids make their own. Let them experiment with different flavors…because they will!
If you have not bought crushed ice, simply put ice cubes into a blender
Spoon crushed ice into a cup…make it as fine or crunchy as you like.
Pack the ice down because when you pour the Kool-Aid Easy Mix in, it will melt a tiny bit.
Just a heads up…these Kool-Aid Easy Mix bottles are not the little tiny ones, they are 18.2 fluid oz.! Perfect for a Slushy Bar.
That is it for the Slushy Bar! Oh so easy and yet a big hit!
I came up with this Yummy little snack recipe too and it was a HUGE hit!
Fruity Snack Roll Ups
- 1 Tortilla
- 1/4 Cup Fruit ~ Fresh (you can use frozen, but as the fruit unthaws is gets a little damp)
- 2 Tbsp. Plain Cream Cheese
- 1/2 Tbsp. Kool-Aid Easy Mix
Mix Cream Cheese with Kool-Aid Easy Mix, flavor of choice. It comes in Cherry, Tropical Punch and Grape.
Then spread onto a Tortilla.
Next top with Fruit, Roll up and then cut into bite size pieces.
These were sooo deelish that my husband even loved them and asked if we could have them more often! No kidding!
PIN FOR LATER!
