No matter how hot it gets outside, my family enjoys taking advantage of our backyard. It’s one of the reasons we bought our current house. When we’re outside we always have drinks on hand and some of our favorites include our favorite juice drinks. But recently we got some new squirt guns and I wanted to plan a little fun! So I swapped out the water and used our Kool-Aid!
Squirt Gun Tie Dye Fun with Juice Drinks
Summer afternoons in Texas mean that I’m always on the hunt for fun ways to cool off. Having a family water fight has been fun for the entire family. We’ve done it a few times and it has quickly become one of our favorite ways to have fun without spending much money! We also love getting creative and making arts and crafts.
So when I spotted the 96 oz. Ready-To-Drink Kool-Aid, I immediately knew how I could combine some of our favorite things and have even more fun! I was ready to surprise the family with Squirt Gun Tie Dye fun!
What you need:
- Squirt guns (at least one for every person who’s going to play!)
- White t-shirts (one for everyone!)
- 96 oz. Ready-To-Drink Kool-Aid
I only had one little challenge as I prepared for the fun. I had to figure out how to fill the squirt guns with Kool-Aid! I couldn’t just pour it in because I bought small squirt guns. I didn’t want to waste any of our Kool-Aid. So I filled a large bowl with the juice drink and held the squirt gun under the liquid to fill it.
I used a small cup to pour in a bit more and top of each squirt gun.
What you do:
- Fill the squirt guns with Kool-Aid.
- Change into white shirts.
- Head outside and fire away! (We did set some guidelines of not shooting at people’s faces. The shirts were the targets!)
And the the fun began! I love watching my family smiling, laughing, and making memories. Since I became a mom, I have really come to appreciate the small moments. Sometimes it’s the simple things that leave the most lasting memories. While our squirt gun tie dye fun wasn’t very complicated, it was more fun than some of the bigger things we have planned with the family recently.
Sometimes simple fun is perfect fun.
While it was a blast to break out the squirt guns and fire away as everyone ran around the yard. It was also fun to see what designs and creations we made while doing it. I had pink fingers from filling the squirt guns with Kool-Aid and the juice drink left great color on our new white shirts!
If you plan on having Kool-Aid squirt gun fun, I definitely recommend picking up some plain white shirts or some old white shirts you have laying around the house. And we all wore dark colored shorts too so they wouldn’t be ruined!
After running around in the afternoon heat, our 96 oz. Ready-To-Drink Kool-Aid was the perfect juice drink to help us cool off. J said it reminded him of being a kid. That was music to my ears! It was definitely a throw back to the simple summer fun of my childhood when we would just make up silly games to entertain ourselves.
And picking up all of the supplies I need at Walmart made it easy to get prepared for our fun!
