What can you do with the kids when the temperatures outside reach 100 degrees? Cool off inside and make these fun Kool-Aid Dots Candy. This is a no bake recipe that only requires 3 ingredients. It will keep you and the kids entertained for several hours.
If your kids are like mine they have never seen the old Kool-Aid commercials. Do you remember them?
The commercials start with several kids playing outside and one of them would say “Whew, I’m hot and thirsty” as they wiped the sweat off their forehead. ‘This is a job for Kool-Aid”, the kids would then yell “Hey Kool-Aid Man”. The Kool-Aid man would break through a wall or fence, run over and pour the kids an ice cold glass of Kool-Aid. I thought these commercials were “cool” when I was a kid, watching them now I laugh because the are so corny!
For the strips, cut out 2 inch strips of wax paper and white paper. I taped the wax paper over the graph paper and used the grid to evenly space my dots and create different patterns. If tracing or drawing a picture, cut out a piece of wax paper and white paper the same size as the drawing or picture.
