DIY Slushy Stand | Summer Fun with Kids

Have you heard the words “I’m bored!” in your house yet?!?

Oh…we are not even half-way into summer and they have already been spoken in my house! Sometimes my boys just need a little idea to trigger some great activity!

Ruth, over at Living Well Spending Less has a series going on right now called Summer Fun with Kids.  Every Monday a guest-post blogger shares an idea with the Living Well Spending Less readers which coincides with an awesome giveaway!

You can meet all the bloggers below!  It’s a fabulous group of women with some super cool ideas that your kids are sure to love.


Today Sports Mom Survival Guide is excited to share our DIY Slushy Stand! The kids had so much fun making and selling slushies to the neighborhood kids…they can’t wait to get it out and do it all again!  I mean, who doesn’t love a slushy on a hot day!! 😉

This project is easy to make and a great way to spend time with your kids.  And if slushies are too much for you, it can be used for other things…think lemonade, hot chocolate, cookies and more! If you use chalkboard paint they can change the wording to sell different things in every season. In between the kids using the stand, you can use the cooler to pack up everything for a game!

You’ll want to be sure to head over to LWSL and read all about it! We’ve included step-by step directions as well as a free printable sign for your very own stand!  The best part is, Ruth is giving away a Slushy Maker and Rolling Igloo Cooler to one lucky winner!!  So while you are there be sure to enter for a chance to win. 🙂
