Celebrate kids!

With school almost out, it’s time to start thinking of fun activities for the summer. Get your kids’ creative juices flowing with fun ideas like using twigs to make a natural vase. Just follow these easy steps for a beautiful new centerpiece.

Getting your kids to eat healthy is smooth sailing when you turn cheese and hot dogs into fun sailboats. Since you control the ingredients, you also control the nutrition. Use wheat or pumpernickel bread and add color as well as healthy fiber. Select your favorite cheese and hot dog—you can even go all-natural.

Then let the fun bubble over with new Kool-Aid Fun Fizz. It’s a fun, easy way to turn plain water into a fizzy, fruity drink. And right now you can try Fun Fizz free when you buy three boxes of Capri Sun. Drink in the fun and stay hydrated with these go-anywhere drinks.
