Welcome to the second week of our Alice in Wonderland fun. If you're a regular reader (thanks for coming back) you will know about all of the improvements I have been adding to Wonder Kids over the past few weeks. Well this week is no different, I have added two brand new sections.
The New Video's section is the new home for all of our video's that we have been making for two years now. Not only is it for our videos but there are also other Youtube Channels there too that feature Wonder Kids and some videos just from our friends that we think you will like too. We have already uploaded our first video of 2017 which is a review of the new Furby Connect, check it out below.
The second new section is Kids Kitchen, over the years I have shown some great simple ideas that are a great way to introduce kids into the kitchen and to get them trying some more adventurous food too. I have highlighted some of my favourite ideas but if you scroll down the page you will find even more ideas and I will be updating this section regularly with brand new videos from the Wonder Kids You Tube Channel.
Now we are done with the biggest intro I have ever included on a blog post, it's time to get down to business. This week I have another great way to get the kids into the kitchen and get some extra fruit into them by making it fun. I have included three "Glowtini" recipes. Whats a Glowtini? its a child friendly mocktail that glows in the dark and it's completely safe to drink! Read on to find out more.
Cherry Mint Glowtini
- 1 cup fresh cherries, stemmed and pitted
- 1/4 cup fresh mint
- 1/2 tbsp Sugar
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 3 cups club soda
In a large bowl, combine cherries, mint, and sugar. Using a potato masher or pastry blender, muddle ingredients together until cherries burst and mint has released it's flavor. Add to a large glass pitcher and add lime juice, club soda, and ice. Mix gently to combine.
Serve over additional crushed ice. Now for the cool part, turn it into a Glowtini by adding one of these super cool glowing ice cubes. Serve it in a darkened room and you'll hear the gasps and how cool it looks, it tastes great too.
Candy Floss fairy bubbly
For glowtini no.2 I have the simplest idea ever, no excuses for this one you have to try it.
- Place one piece of cotton candy in the glass and pour over the cherry 7up.
- Place a cherry in the glass and serve.
- Yes… it is that easy! I warned you that is was crazy easy.
- Add a glowing ice cube to turn it into a Glowtini
Raspberry Lemonade Fizz Glowtini
This recipe is the most time coming but it tastes great and it has real fruit in it. Here's what you'll need
1 pk frozen Raspberries
Lemonade to taste
First, cook down frozen raspberries into a thick, syrupy juice. Time: 10-15 minutes.
Second, press syrup through a fine-mesh sieve to remove seeds.
Third, chill the raspberry syrup for at least 2 hours.
Finally, combine raspberry juice with lemonade in a large pitcher and top with ginger ale.
Pour over ice and serve! Add one of the glowing ice cubes for the wow factor.
That's it for this week but come back next week for more great Alice in Wonderland ideas. You can also try some of our previous posts below and don't forget to let us know which Glowtini is your favourite in the comments below.
