5 MINUTE Summer Fun - DIY Snow Cone Syrup

Today's 5 Minute Summer fun is one of my kids favorites - DIY snow cone syrup. Be the Super Summer MOM and take 5 minutes to create fun for your kids.

This year I even set up a permanent summer snow cone station in my kitchen. I took a tray and placed our snow cone machine, variety of syrups, straws, spoons and cups on it and now we are ready to make snow cones at a moments notice.

Ingredients Needed:
1 package unsweetened Kool-Aid your choice of flavor ( my kids love the punch flavor)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup water water

1 Squirt bottle ( pic nick condiment bottles)

Place sugar and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat, pour in the Kool-Aid and stir until dissolved. Cool to room temperature and
pour mixture into squirt bottle then place in the refrigerator until chilled.

Have you thought about something more natural like fruit syrups? They're really easy to make, have no artificial colors, and provide some nutrition instead of just sugar.

Just a suggestion, but raspberry and blueberry are especially kid friendly :) Just keep the syrups in squeeze bottles in the fridge and you're done!
