Homemade Slushy Cups

Last week my kids were in the store and saw something that peeked their interests..slushy magic. These cool little cups claim to turn any ol’ drink into a homemade slushy and only cost you $15! Well even though the kids thought this was the most amazing invention ever, I couldn’t stomach to spend $15 on a cup so I decided to try and make my own slushy magic cup. Believe it or not it’s very simple and inexpensive to make these homemade slushy cups.

How to make Slushy Magic Cups

Rock Salt (The same salt used for Homemade Ice Cream)
Juice or what ever drink you would like to use
1 Gallon Size Ziploc Bag
1 Medium Size Ziploc Bag

1. Take the Gallon Ziploc bag and fill the bottom up with ice, about 1/3 of the way up.
2. Next Add 1/3 Cup of Rock Salt on top of the Ice.
3. Fill the Medium Size Bag with your beverage, we used 1 Box of grape juicy juice. Seal the bag well, make sure it doesn’t leak! You don’t want the Rock Salt solution getting inside. You can even double bag it if you need to.
4. Place the well-sealed ziplock Bag with the juice on top of the Rock Ice and seal this bag. Make sure you get most of the air out.
5. Now is the fun part, rub the rock salt mixture against the juice mixture until it starts to change into a slushy. This took us about 4 minutes.
6. Take the slushy bag out of the gallon ziplock bag and pour the slushy into a cup. Eat with a spoon or straw and ENJOY! It was about 93 degrees outside when we made ours so it didn’t stay frozen for long.

We have only tried making this with juice so far but I plan other things throughout the summer. I bought a 5 lb bag of rock salt which should last me quite a bit. I hope you all enjoy and I would love to hear how your slushy magic cups turn out.

Nickelodeon Floam and Gak Review

For many kids growing up in the 90’s, myself included, there were a few toys that just stuck out among all of the rest. Two of these  popular products are back and better than ever. Nickelodeon Floam and Nickelodeon Gak have been completely reformulated and ready to provide hours of entertainment and creative play.

 We received a few containers of Gak and Floam in a variety of colors. I asked both of my kids which product they wanted to play with first and they both unanimously decided on the Gak. The Gak comes in a fun container which is sealed with a lid so you can put your Gak back after your done playing with it and it stays soft. The first time we opened up the containers I had a little bit of trouble getting all of the Gak out, but once it was out and activated it was fine.

Gak can be squeezed, squashed, stretched, twisted, rolled or even blown into bubbles! We grabbed a straw from the kitchen and had competitions on who could blow the biggest Gak bubble.

The New Nickelodeon Gak is made with a different formula than it was 20+ years ago so it’s easier to use and less messy. I will warn you though it can get pretty sticky so I would definitely put down a play mat so that it doesn’t get all over your table. Gak is really easy to clean up with water though, so if it does get everywhere it doesn’t take much to wipe it up. Gak is available in Rebel Red, Goo Green, You Blue It, Yakkity Yellow, Purple Panic, and Tickled Pink. Each container will run you around $6.99 Each.

After about an hour of playing with the Gak we moved on to the Floam. This one was by far my favorite because it’s almost mess-free. The Floam is a reusable molding compound that can be used to make different creations. This textured floam can be squeezed, squashed, flattened and molded to be transformed into a masterpiece.

As a mom of a preschooler I can really appreciate products that can allow Aubrey to play and create things without me having to spend forever cleaning up afterwards. We made several things with our Floam including a Snake, Flower, and Ice Cream Cone. I even got out the cookie cutters and we made shapes out of the Floam. My kids had a blast and when they were done, we put the Floam back in it’s container for the next time. If your child makes something that they want to keep, you can leave the Floam creation out over night and it hardens up.

We had a great time playing with these new and Improved Nickelodeon Products and it was great to play with a product that I loved as a child with my children. Floam is available in Rockin Red, Blazin’ Blue, Electic Yellow, Glimmer Green, Posh Pink, and Purple Power. Each container will cost you around $6.99 Each.

Nickelodeon Gak and Floam are non-toxic, non-staining, phthalate, latex and BPA free. They are available for purchase at Target, Toys R Us, Bed Bath and Beyond, A.C Moore and Walgreens.

Disclosure: I was sent both Gak and Floam for in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own and no other compensation was received.
