Step 5: Once dry, add family photos or other memories into the clasps of the clothespins. Attach a hook or loop to the back to hang.
[Per 1 serving]
1 heaping tablespoon of powdered lemonade mix (such as Countrytime)
1 cup of cold pineapple juice
Mix together with ice. Add lemon slices to give the juice an extra burst of sunshine.
Sunny fruits & veggies
Carrot sticks or baby carrots
Use orange slice as base of sun. Arrange strawberries or carrots around the orange slices like the rays of a sun. Feel free to get creative! You could use raisins or chocolate chips to give the sun a smiley face, or add marshmallows to make it a partly-cloudy day.
