When it gets hot around here it gets HOT!!! I’m talking ninety-five degrees and higher during the Summer months which is why I like to enjoy family time outdoors during the Spring versus the Summer.
We have so many amazing things to do around here and have no qualms about packing the picnic basket with food and fruit juice drinks for a day trip to the lake.
Our local lake has a playground, a lake for fishing, a walking trail and lots of wildlife roaming around.
The fact that it’s free to the public makes this a very inexpensive way for us to connect as a family.
We like to spend time at the running or power walking as soon as we get there, then it’s time to #KoolOff with lunch and yummy fruit drinks.
Pack family friendly meals
I always pack something that’s easy for any member of our family to put together such as sandwiches and because we seem to get thirsty every five minutes the new Ready-To-Drink 96oz Kool-Aid bottles, perfect to ensure they have plenty to drink!
These fruit beverages are a winner on a hot day because they are colorful, full of sweetness and ice cold.
To ensure their drinks are cold, I pre freeze some water in the bottom of their bottles before leaving home.
These afternoons spent at the lake as a family is priceless, and I want to ensure I don’t get all stressed flustered preparing and packing for the day. I keep it simple and Kool-Aid fruit beverages help me do that.
Pack extra beverages
Whether I pick up the 96oz. Kool-Aid bottles to take to the lake or the Kool-Aid Bursts with the easy twist caps to take on our trips to the drive in movie, packing extra drinks is always simple.
If your schedule doesn’t permit an outing right away still head to Walmart to grab a bottle of Kool-Aid and try this recipe.
These Kool-Aid ice cubes that I like to call “Kool-Cubes”are really simple to make using Kool-Aid found at your local Walmart.
1. Choose your favorite Kool-Aid flavor.
2. Fill half of your ice tray with one flavor and the other half with your other flavor.
3. Freeze and add to your favorite beverage. We used Sprite.
