Summer Drink Recipes For Kids
One of the great things about summer is the longer days and the warmer temperatures. That means kids are outside playing longer and they're not in the house constantly looking for something to do. The downside is that if you're like most parents’ you'll have a backyard full of kids wanting something cool to drink at some point during the season.
Of course, you could serve them plain-old Kool-aid or juices, but that can get expensive and isn't always the most nutritious way to go. Or, you could serve up some great homemade summer drinks and have the reputation as the "coolest" mom in the neighborhood. Why not try some of these great drink recipes especially for kids the next time it's your turn to provide something refreshing.
