There are days when I just do not believe my daughter is normal.
Don't most children want something WARM when they come in from an afternoon spent cavorting in the snow? You know...hot cocoa or chicken noodle soup?
No, she doesn't ask for something hot and fortifying after playing outside in sub-zero temperatures. She wants SWEET ICE - a cold, sugary snack that leaves her tongue painted in multi-colored hues and her cheeks pink with happiness.
In the event your own children are abnormal, here's how it's done:
First, you'll want to mix up the flavoring. It's simple - only three ingredients.
1 envelope Kool-Aid (Kylie likes cherry or grape the best)
1 cup hot water
2 cups sugar (I know - I never claimed it was healthy)
Mix these together, and I like to store the syrup in a plastic squirt bottle. Just use whatever you have handy. Now...
Using a clean bowl, collect some fresh snow.
