The photo above is a standard snapshot of the everyday domestic bliss of my household. Just kidding. They’re more often seen having turf wars over Thomas tracks and trains. But these moments do happen occasionally! This one was captured over the Easter weekend when Mr 4 decided we should make “frosty fruits”. I’m not sure where he got the idea but he explained it in very careful detail, right down to the straws, spoons and umbrellas. Here’s how you make Crackers’ frosty fruit mocktails…
What you will need
- clear plastic glasses (we went for cocktail style ones because we already had them in the cupboard)
- tinned fruit (we used pineapple here but any sort of tinned fruit would work)
- juice (Crackers’ original instructions were to use apple juice but we ended up just using the leftover juice from the tinned pineapple)
- a dash of soda water for a bit of fizz
- cocktail umbrella
This was super easy to do, lots of fun and provided the boys with some great, inexpensive entertainment (I’m not sure there is anything in the world that’s funnier to a 4 and nearly-2 year old than blowing ‘fart’ bubbles into your mocktail!). Let us know in the comments below if you have any suggestions to vary it up a bit. That’s all on this one – bottoms up!
