Kool-Aid Brings Families Together with a “Noches de Pelikoola” Fun Family Bingo ActivityAug 7th, 2011 | By Cloutwomen | Category: Juice, News & Views
Summers in the Bay Area with young children meant a lot of creative thinking in my family. I remember waking up to the sound of children playing outside my window and that was always music to my ears. We had a ritual when the last bell of school rang and a year would be over. A trip to a local soda fountain for something old fashioned and then thoughts and plans for fun summer activities would ensue.
On hot days, it may have been a beverage stand for neighbors who passed by, usually in conjunction with a someone holding a garage sale. We always kept a pitcherful of Kool Aid Lemonade for thirsty children and many times on a weekend, we would have 6 for a sleepover. Pizza was a requisite and Fruit Punch flavored Kool Aid was always the easiest to offer up the young ones. And they always wanted more!
Life then and now has certainly changed. The world has gone digital and with that, our children and well, mom and dad! It’s nice to know that the old reliables are still around. Kool-Aid is still a fun family staple for busy and active families. They’ve adapted to the changing times, though! They’ve got a really cool Facebook Fan Page with a fun “Kool-Aid” section you must check out! There’s a schedule of upcoming Sunday movie nights which you can watch as a family and downloadable movie-specific Bingo cards for the entire family to play during the movie. The Bingo card features a tasty Kool-Aid recipe. Kool-Aid are some recipes you might also want to check out! Think outside the packet!
While you’re on that page, there’s a coupon for you to download and print and take to the store!
Kool-Aid has 1/3 the sugar contained in regular soda. And it’s less expensive too! Make as little or as much as you need, it’s easy and convenient. My kids used to love making it themselves! HINT: we loved putting them in ice cube trays and you can get fun-shaped ice makers these days!
It’s nice to know that good things are here to stay and that memories can still be made generation after generation.
Does your family have memories like these? What’s your favorite Kool-Aid flavor?
