It’s inexpensive, it smells good, and there are a lot more uses for Kool-Aid than just drinking it! Check out out all these awesome ways to use it, from activities for keeping kids busy to household chores, Kool-Aid can (almost) do it all!

 

 

 

Scrub away toilet bowl stains

Pour one packet of lemon or orange flavored Kool-Aid into your toilet bowl and let it sit for a few minutes. Scrub the bowl with a toilet brush. The citric acid and abrasive texture of Kool-Aid helps to break down and dissolve stains while smelling awesome! Much better than harsh chemicals!

 

Remove rust stains from concrete

Most of us can relate to these kinds of stains on our patio, garage floor or driveaway. Mix a few drops of water with a packet of lemon flavored Kool-Aid to make a paste. Rub it on to the stained area with an abrasive brush and watch it work wonders!

 

Color eggs

Never buy an Easter Egg coloring kit again! Kool-Aid comes in a ton of different colors now, and the packets are inexpensive! Mix one packet of your desired color with 2/3 cup of water and gently lower a hard boiled egg into the cup. Let it sit until desired shade of color is reached. We do this every year, and I promise they tuned out beautiful!

 

Make window clings with Kool-Aid and white glue

Pour Kool-Aid into a bottle of white school glue and mix thoroughly using a thin, long utensil like a chopstick or kebab stick. You can use the new colored glue to create art on canvas or paper, or make designs on stretched plastic wrap (tape down the sides to remove the creases) that can be dried and used as window clings! It smells good too!

 

Make scented playdough

Mix the following ingredients in a medium pot to make Kool-Aid playdough:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 Kool-Aid packets (same color)
  • 3/4 cup water

Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring until the dough clumps together and reaches play dough consistency. Repeat the process for each color. Let cool and store in plastic baggies.

 

Make scented/flavored lip gloss

Heat up one cup of Vaseline in a small microwavable bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds (don’t let the Vaseline turn into liquid). Stir in a small amount Kool-Aid mix and stir well. Experiment with how much Kool-Aid to add. Transfer lip gloss to a small, portable container and enjoy!

 

Kool-Aid colored pasta

Make pasta extra fun, colorful and smelling great! Just add pasta, water and kool-aid in a baggie, let sit until desired color is reached, rinse, and you’ve got colored pasta!  You can cook as usual and eat it or use for fun art projects!

 

Make scented bath paints

Get a muffin tin and fill each hole with shaving cream (you can get it for $1 at the dollar store), then mix in different flavors of Kool-Aid into each hole and mix it up. Kids can dip in paint brushes and then paint on the bathtub and tiles while they’re taking a bath!

My Kids LOVE visiting The North Pole, the home of Santa’s Workshop!  It’s an enchanting amusement park nestled in the mountains of Cascade, CO, just west of Colorado Springs. If you haven’t been yet, this is a great year to check it out as they celebrate their 60th birthday! My children and I had the opportunity to visit this past week and enjoy the festivities, and we had a blast!

 

 

 

History of The North Pole

On March 10, 1955 an announcement was made that a 25-acre Santa’s Workshop would be built on the slopes of Pikes Peak. The village was to be identical to the one built in Lake Placid, New York, after Life magazine ran a story about it.

 

The village in New York was designed by Arto Monaco, a former Walt Disney artist. In the 1940s, an 8-year old girl told the artist what she believed Santa Claus’ home and village looked like. Monaco then translated her image of the magical land into blueprints for an actual village. A group of people in Colorado Springs saw the article in Life magazine and felt it could also be successful on Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs.

 

When the park first opened, it was just Santa and the Village along with craftsmen –there were no rides in the park.

 

The original investors had enough money to build the North Pole but didn’t have sufficient funds to keep it going, and several investors had dropped out. Two major investors, Art Hertzberger and George Haggard, worked together to keep the park going. By the late ‘60s, Hertzberger sold his part to the Haggard family. The Haggard family continues to run the park to this day; they’ve worked there for three generations.

 

Since the park opened on June 16, 1956, it has changed from a village of craftsmen to a family amusement park. The North Pole continues to maintain the scenic alpine village of the original park.  In the center of the park is a pole (yes, the North Pole) made of ice that never melts.

 

The North Pole has always dedicated itself to helping children in need. Operation Toy Lift, initiated at the opening of the park in 1956, brings foster children and their families to the park for a day of fun. This year Santa’s Workshop expects more than 1,200 guests for this event!

My kids favorite rides are the zip line and Tilt-a-Whirl! Everyone at the park is very friendly and helpful, and it’s always fun to pop in for a visit with Santa Claus! Be sure to stop by this year for a day of family fun and the feeling of “Christmas” all year

Each summer, kids across the country head off to summer camp to enjoy the outdoors, meet potential lifelong friends and embark on new adventures. There are all kinds of camps out there; day camp, sleep away, traditional, specialty, and more.  With so many camps to choose from, finding the right experience for your child can seem overwhelming. But, with a little research, finding a meaningful summer experience is not as difficult as you might think.

Safety comes first: when selecting a camp, make sure that it is properly licensed. In Colorado, camps are licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services, and with some exceptions, camps should hold a current license. Requirements of licensing include background checks for staff, staff training, making sure the camp facility is in good repair, and procedures for emergencies. Camps can also be accredited by the American Camp Association. ACA is the educational, professional development and accrediting organization for the camp industry. Camps that volunteer to be accredited by the ACA are reviewed on over 300 standards, which are recognized as industry best practices. In addition to safety, standards address the camp’s philosophy, and program design and quality.

Activities at camp are important, but the camp’s philosophy, goals and outcomes are even more significant. Good camps offer fun and interesting activities. Great camps offer activities designed to build campers’ independence, teamwork and problem-solving skills. Recently, the ACA joined the Partnership for 21st Century Learning, a coalition whose goal is to help children be successful in their personal and academic lives, and as citizens of their community. Whether the focus is on innovation, leadership or community, a camp that has goals for outcomes for its campers provides a more meaningful experience for campers and their families.

Quality camp staff is also key.  Counselors keep kids safe, help them develop friendships, teach new skills, and foster a sense of community. They act as mentors and friends and should be well trained. They should maintain CPR, first aid and activity specific certifications, and have training specific to the camp. The camp’s counselor-to-camper ratio and type of training the staff have are important considerations. You can also get a good sense of what the camp is about by contacting the camp director.  A good director understands the investment and trust that you are placing in them by choosing their camp, will answer your questions, and might be able to provide references from their current or past camp families.

Whether it’s a traditional day camp, sleepaway camp, or specialty camp, there are great camp experiences awaiting your child this summer! With a little bit of research you can set your child up for the best possible experience. A summer of taking in the outdoors, making friends and new adventures is just a few short months away!

Check out our summer camp guide for lots of great summer camp options for your child! 

Looking for somewhere fun to take the family? If you’re tired of the same old restaurants, we’ve got a fun list to check out! When looking for a unique dining experience, atmosphere can be just as important as the food! Check out these fun and inviting themed restaurants and take a break from the ordinary!  The kids will love it!

 

 

 

  1. Casa Bonita (Lakewood)

Casa Bonita is one of those Mexican restaurants that you go to for the atmosphere, and not so much the cuisine. It doesn’t receive rave reviews in the food department, but if you like Mariachi bands, gorillas chasing you, cliff divers diving off of cliffs, caves, palm trees, hidden grottos and darn good Sopapillas, you HAVE to go and check it out.  It’s honestly fun for the whole family!

casa_bonita_1

 

2. Solo’s Restaurant (Colorado Springs)

Parked in South Colorado Springs is a historic Boeing KC-97 tanker which has been transformed into a dining experience!  If you like planes, you’ll thoroughly enjoy eating a meal in one!

3. Linger (Denver)

If death and mortuaries are your thing, you may enjoy a meal at Linger…It’s actually known for an amazing menu and drinks, and was once a mortuary that housed the body of notorius William Frederick “Buffalo Bill” Cody! Instead of hiding the building’s macabre past, the restaurant owners decided to embrace it, starting with the iconic sign.  They’ve embraced it’s theme and offer menus shaped like coffins, water served in formaldehyde bottles, and a church pew that serves as a host stand!  We must also mention it has an amazing outdoor deck that has stunning views of the city.

4. The Rabbit Hole (Colorado Springs)

Located in downtown Colorado Springs, this restaurant is actually located underground, and you have to take a narrow staircase to get down. Underneath you will find what only can be described as an Alice in Wonderland themed underground oasis!  It’s truly a unique experience, and their food is fantastic!

5. White Fence Farm (Lakewood)

Known for it’s beautiful country themed grounds, home cooked meals and live music, you don’t want to miss out on an experience at White Fence Farm.  They also have a petting zoo and indoor playground which is great if there’s inclement weather!

6. Downtown Aquarium (Denver)

Dine with the fish at the Denver Aquarium!  You can sit right beside a 50,000 gallon fish tank which is something you don’t get to do every day!

7. The Fort (Morrison)

From their website:  The Fort, an award-winning Denver western restaurant located just southwest of Denver, is one of the nation’s most recognized establishments and sells more buffalo steaks than any other independently owned restaurant in the country. Featuring fine beef, buffalo, game and seafood, The Fort’s menu offers a tantalizing selection of old and new foods from the Early West.

Many of our original Inferno techs and cast have been with us since then and are now members of our family. We have watched the cast grow not only into adults but into key members of our team. With each haunt that we do our family grows and we are thrilled. We welcome previous cast and crew back and enjoy reuniting the family as often as possible.

Our family has a wide range of skill sets, from Professional Grave Diggers to Rock and Roll Roadies to Technical Theater Teachers to Electrical Engineers and Computer Scientists to Certified Pyrotechnicians, Airbrush Artists and more. We even have a Therapist to help out when we have messed with our own heads too much.
