Family Movie Nights With Kool-Aid

This post brought to you by Kool Aid. All opinions are 100% mine.

What do you remember most about being a kid? I remember running around and playing, going on picnics and to the beach, and having fun with the neighborhood kids. Kool-Aid reminds me of my childhood, and every time I see a glass of Kool-Aid fruit punch I remember fun times with this sweet summer drink, and proudly displaying our red tongues. It was a treat any time my mom bought those envelopes for us kids, and we always wanted to help mix the powder into the water pitcher and watch the water magically turn into bright colors. We’d drink our Kool-Aid with fun twisty straws, or make slushies by mixing our drinks with ice in a blender.

Now I’m a mom, and I love to do things with my own family. My son wants to help me when I make things, so it’s his turn to stir the Kool-Aid mix and watch the water magically transform. As a family, we love to spend time together, and absolutely love family movie night. We protect our evenings as a family, especially on the weekends, because it keeps up close. Kool-Aid is encouraging families to enjoy family movie night together with “Noches de Pelikoola”. If you’d love to start having family movie nights with your family before your own children are grown and gone, start today! A fun way to begin is to have great treats and a good movie. I often talk with other moms that I connect to here on my site about the importance of spending both quality and quantity time with your family, and the importance of building family memories for your child to cherish in their own lifetime.

So, what memories do you have when you think of Kool-Aid? Do you have memories of days in the park and cheering on siblings at little league like me, or other fond memories? I’d love to hear about it!

    We don’t drink it often buts its gone quickly when we do. I remember when one of my cousin’s would make the kool aid he would add so much sugar it would be like syrup! Ewww! But every time I make it, that’s the image that I come up with first.ReplyCancel

    Kool-Aid isn’t sold here in Ireland, but I brought some from the States. When my stepdaughter turned sixteen we had a party with about 40 of her friends. Among the drinks available was the Kool-Aid. Other drinks were available, mostly sodas, and I expected them to be gone quickly. To my great surprise, it was the Kool-Aid I couldn’t make enough of! The teens had heard of it in music and in movies, I guess, and several of them remarked that they had never tried it, but were excited to do. They drank glass after glass of it! Fortunately, most of it was sugar-free—until I ran out of that and had to go ‘old school’. I couldn’t get over how popular it was and how impressed these kids were by something that can be found in virtually every American home and is totally taken for granted! If you ever want to make an Irish (or English, etc.) teenager VERY happy, send an envelope of Kool-Aid!ReplyCancel

    I remember getting Kool-Aid mustaches at my cousin’s house whenever we’d drink it and I love the presweetened stuff because it was like candy!ReplyCancel

    My MIL used to make their Kool Aid with about 1/2 the sugar. Hubs and his sister never even knew the difference until they had a play date at their friends house one time. LOL.ReplyCancel

    I used to love Kool-Aid as a kid, and I drink it at my sister’s house when my mom wasn’t around. My mom wouldn’t let me drink it, because it would make me so hyper! ~lol~ReplyCancel
