I've been melting with jealousy over everyone posting pictures of their mouth watering slushy drinks. We don't have a slushy stand or shop anywhere in the Northern Virginia area. Believe me I've been scouring the web and asking everyone I know! Today when the temps hit near 100 I decided to take matters into my own hands and make Judah and I watermelon slushy drinks with cute tiny umbrellas. This project is ridiculously easy.
*frozen cubed seedless watermelon
Put the frozen watermelon with a cup full of ginger ale into the food processor. Blend until slushy. Its really that easy.
*white construction paper
*paint/crayon/markers (what ever you want to use to decorate)
*two circles to trace. I used a mason jar lid and the inside of a tape roll
Trace out both circles on the construction paper. I had Judah decorate with the paint sticks. Once decorated cut out both circles. With the larger circle your going to fold the paper several times to make ridges (picture above). Once folded cut out one of the triangle slices from the ridge. Overlap the two sections on the larger circle and glue. Stick the toothpick through the smaller circle. Glue the sides of the smaller circle and place inside the umbrella for support. Make sure the top of the toothpick sticks through the top of the large circle like an umbrella. Let it dry and stick into your fancy summer drink.
