    YAY FUN!

  2. Those are some great ideas. I love the colored ice cubes.

  3. The colored ice cubes look like tons of fun but so messy! I think I might make them with kool-aid so my daughter can actually eat them and they’ll taste good.

  4. Those are fun crafts! I love that ice cube one :)

  5. these are so clever! thanks for sharing :)

  6. Great ideas! We are definitely going to try the bubbles next week.

  7. Pretty much any fruit or veggie that can be blended can make for
    a great lunch or afternoon snack. More Power – If you want to
    be able to crush ice for mixed drinks or do any other of a number of items that you may
    ask a blender to do then you are going to need power. Once you get used to it,
    it will not be easy to set it down and use another blender.
