Wanna add a little excitement to snack time?!?!?!?

Okay, so I just thought of this great trick all by myself and though it is so simple, I was really quite tickled with myself. My kids LOVED this and that made my day. Just thought I'd share the fun.

MAGIC Halloween Milk:

* Use a clear cup.

*Secretly add two drops yellow food coloring and one drop red.

* Hold the cup so your kids can't see the food coloring.

* Pour the milk. As it comes out of the carton it is white and as it hits the cup it magically turns orange. Fascinating!

How cute and what a great idea! I'm being serious when I say you need to do a mommy camp. For real.

THROW UP!!! I can hardly drink regular milk, let alone orange milk.

I will give you creative points though! :)

You need to send your ideas into Family Circle or Parenting magazine. I would also cringe at the sight of orange milk but kids dig it.

Well, now, what's wrong with orange milk!? It reminds me of a creamcicle. Make it taste like one and I'm TOTALLY on board.

I like milk sometimes, but I am inclined to feel like Kim! It just looks yukky! If the kids like it, all is great!!!
You are something else, Honey!!!
We love you!
