The wind was not my friend taking the above photo...it's a crazy windy sort of day here.
But, I was excited to show you all what I'm doing this weekend for the kiddies at our Easter gathering. Wanted something fun for them to sip on...and that would keep bugs out since we'll be outside!
(This is kind of a conglomeration of several pinterest ideas out there).
I used these glass coffee drink bottles (my husband's been chugging them for me all week). I used the generic brand from my store, it was $1 cheaper than the "real deal". I also grabbed Easter printed cupcake liners from Hob Lob and straws. These would be super sweet with the stripey straws, too!
But, of course, these are available everywhere, too.
After consuming, peel off the plastic wrapper (the entire bottle is covered in it...it's nice that you don't have to scrub off paper, though)! Wash them out well.
Pour in your favorite drink. We're using pink lemonade 'cause we're fancy like that.
Snip a little "X" on the center of your cupcake liner.
Lay it top side down on your bottle and slip your straw inside.
