Earlier this week, my lovely friend at Mom Tried It, Kim, sent me MORE Kool Aid after I lost the first lot. ( I know it will turn up, someday). So, today, I was busting to try it out :) It smells incredibly sweet, even in an unopened packet. So we decided to do some simple water painting with it that would give us lovely smelling paintings.
So Amahli and I sat up and began to make a simple concoction of water and Kool Aid. Both of us wanted to try the powder. Neither of us had any idea how incredibly SOUR this stuff is!! Amahli didnt get it the first time, and had to try again. Me? Umm.. well... lets just say it took me longer ;) ( I had to try ever single one, believing for just a moment, that one of them would taste like it smells. I can see why you have to add copious amounts of sugar to it!!)
This is the faces when trying Lemon...
I then thought I would have a go at making finger paint from it. I made a cornflour and water paste with two flavours ( lemon and blueberry) and the result was truly )almost) edible. I reckon if I put that in a pastry case it could SO pass as a lemon tart ;) An incredibly tart tart.
