Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

My Drink Is Staring At Me!

I found a pack of gummy eyeballs at the store and wanted to do something with them. I had frozen raisins in ice cubes to make ants or spiders, and wanted to try the same thing with the eyeballs. I filled the ice cube trays and added in the gummy eyeballs. I froze it overnight and then at lunch gave the boys a drink with the eyeballs in them! At first they just had water, but them I gave them fruit punch, which gave it a creepier look. They melted faster than a regular icecube, so I wouldn't add them to the drink until you are ready to serve them. The kids had a blast with these.

DM TIP: If the eyeballs keep floating to the top, fill about halfway, add eyeball and freeze. Once it is frozen, fill the rest of the way and freeze again.
