Day 4 of 4th of July recipes and crafts

Today's recipe is called Patriotic Drink.  I just had to throw in something cool and refreshing for those hot July days.  I am so excited to try this recipe and I am sure that the kids will really love it!  (FYI:  This is NOT my child!!)

Patriotic Drink

  • Ice cubes
  • Cranberry juice
  • Wild Berry flavor Gatorade Fierce
  • Diet 7-Up
  1. Fill a clear glass with ice cubes. Pour the drink with the most sugar (check the nutrition label) into the glass. For our red, white, and blue recipe, start with the cranberry juice.
  2. Very slowly add a beverage that contains less sugar -- in this case, Wild Berry flavor Gatorade Fierce. Be careful to pour it onto an ice cube -- not directly into the other drink -- to keep them from mixing.
  3. Use the same technique to add a layer of Diet 7-Up.

Today's craft is String of Stars
String of Stars

  • Craft Foam
  • Scissors
  • Tacky glue
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbons
  1. Cut out a bunch of craft foam stars that measure five or so inches across.
  2. Next cut out smaller stars of contrasting colors and use tacky glue to attach each one to a larger star.
  3. To finish, use a hole punch to make two holes in each glued pair, then thread lengths of ribbon through to tie them together.
