Now that the weather was starting to get hot, the kids and I were looking for ways to have fun and to keep cool. One of our favorite things to do was to make our own frozen desserts. When we got an ice shaver, we also got some snow cone syrup so we could make our own snow cones. The kids loved projects like these because they didn’t always realize that some things could be made at home instead of just being purchased in stores.
The kids got really good at shaving the ice and making it decorative. At the end of the summer, they wanted to have a pool party to show off everything they had learned about making frozen desserts. They were pretty excited about sharing the experiences they had and catching up with everyone before our schedules got busy again in the fall.
With our own snow cone syrup we could make all kinds of different snow cones for family and friends during the party. The desserts were a huge hit with everyone. Because we got so many different flavors there was a lot of variety and everyone could mix and match flavors if they wanted. The kids are hoping to make the party an annual event now.
