Kid's Seasonal Drink Cups

 

I made some sweet little kid's seasonal drink cups using these small insulated drink cups from Hobby Lobby. They turned out so cute and are so easy to change out for different holidays or seasons. Or you can personalize them once and be done! Either way, I love having these kids sized cups for warm drinks at home or on the go.

I picked up some of these cups on Black Friday from Hobby Lobby. My mom later went back for me after Christmas and stocked up on some more. I later realized that I only really needed one set that I can change out, instead of multiple sets. Oh well! For now, I have lots of options!

Here are the cups as purchased:

I used my Magic Playbook printables to create the cup sleeves. But you could use anything or patterned scrapbook paper. Using the sleeve it came with, I traced and cut out my new one.

These were my Valentine themed ones.

I made them all different so my kids will know which one is theirs.

They turned out so beautiful!

For the mustard yellow cups, I knew I needed to make fall themed ones. They are sooo cute!!!

Once Valentine's Day passed, I made some spring ones.

Now that I have gone through the process of making them I realized that I could just make the seasonal sleeves and store them in my seasonal bins. Then each season I just switch out the sleeve in the cups I keep on hand. Easy peasy and so fun! And hopefully less spills with these festive cups.



Easiest Instant Iced Coffee Recipe | Two Ways

These are the easiest iced coffee recipes using instant coffee. It is quick and delicious and is my spring and summer staple! All you need is a milk frother to make these delicious drinks at home.

Easy Instant Iced Coffee

1 tablespoon instant coffee (regular or decaf)

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon water

milk

Using a hand frother, mix all ingredients together in a cup. Add ice and top with milk of choice (I love oatmilk). You can also add a tablespoon of vanilla syrup for an extra yummy flavored coffee.


Whipped Instant Coffee In Frother

This is very similar to the whipped coffee recipe but if you have an electric frother, this is much easier and faster then using a stand mixer.

1 tablespoon instant coffee (regular or decaf)

1 tablespoon sugar

2 tablespoons water

milk

Pour ingredients into electric frother and whip on cold froth setting. Fill a cup with ice and pour in whipped coffee. Fill the rest with milk of your choice to taste. Add creamer or flavored syrup for an even sweeter treat!





Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to the mamas, moms, mothers, nanas, and grandmas. You are doing important work.

And to those in the trenches of early childhood like me, I found this encouraging and sweet.
