Easy Rainbow Beverages

There are lots of holidays I don’t see fit to spend tons of money on. Is St. Patrick’s Day a lot of fun? Can be. Am I going to spend hundreds of dollars on a shamrock covered St. Patty’s tree? Um, no.

So when I craft for this particular holiday I try to keep things cheap. Or, even better I try to use things that I already have on hand. And I try to make things that don’t need to be stored. Guaranteed if I start making all sorts of St. Patty’s decorations, I won’t find them this time next year. They’ll be in the bottom of a box long forgotten.

So I thought it would be fun for today’s post to do something party related. Now this is great for now because it’s rainbow themed. But it is also a lot of fun for a kid’s party or play date to add something neat and jazzy to the day. I don’t know about you, but it is the out of the norm things I remember most about being a child. So let’s make some memories!

You can even do two colors to make other colors. You know, yellow and red make orange and whatnot.

BUT I wouldn’t recommend just tossing every color in at once. I don’t know if you’ve ever mixed up a whole bunch of colors but the end result is ultimately brown. And this isn’t a tasty soda looking brown. It’s just nasty.

Kids can choose their own colors and try a different one later. I’ve found that if something has a color kids will notice a flavor that isn’t even there. Yellow water will suddenly taste like bananas! And red like cherries!

So with a little bit of effort, the kids can be super stoked and you can be the king or queen of the best party beverages ever.
