Fun Kool-Aid Crafts and Recipes ($250 Prize Pack Giveaway)

Growing up, we had Kool-Aid a lot. Well, maybe not a lot, but at parties, celebrations, we definitely did.  I remember we had these really cool Kool-Aid man mugs and I really really loved those mugs. We might have had a pitcher, too.  Whatever- they were AWESOME.

(and excuse me while I go rock in a corner because the cups are sold. Probably eons ago.  But not to me).

Because it was the 80’s and everything was awesome.  The Kool-Aid man would be on commercials busting through walls of houses to SAVE ALL THE PARTIES bringing his Kool-Aid with him.

And it was awesome.

But the mugs are gone and it probably wouldn’t be well received if the big pitcher-head-guy decided to blow through anyone’s house walls.  So we’re left with memories. And other cups.

ALTHOUGH….

it is the um…teens?  You know. It’s 2013. The time of Pinterest. And Creativity abounds in this world. And now you can do oh so much more with Kool-Aid besides “just” drink it. You can drink it and make things with it.  Bonding time.  Family time. Crafty time. Fun time.  Making memories time.

  • Wild apple blueberry soup: Bring to boil 5 pounds of small wild apples ( can include crabapples)in just enough water to cover half of apples, lower to medium heat, cook until apples are tender, mash well and strain, result will look like thin applesauce, in this, add equal amount of blueberries, cook until mixture will not drip through a slotted spoon, Add nutmeg and cinnamon to taste. Hubby loves this soup, warm or cold!
