Our summer is quickly winding down and we are trying to squeeze out every last bit of fun. Make the rest of summer extra sweet with these easy homemade summer slushies.
This summer has felt like the longest summer and summer boredom has definitely set in. With the start of the school year just around the corner and all the uncertainty that is part of that, my kids could definitely use a little summer cheer. A sweet treat is just what we need to lift our spirits before we say our final goodbye to summer.

How to Make Easy Homemade Summer Slushies
The great thing about making your own homemade slushies is the flavor options are endless. Inspired by my kid’s favorite Sour Patch Kids flavors we made blue raspberry, orange, lime, and cherry slushies.
Add colorful paper straws and the candy kabobs for a festive summer drink.
Use all the sour patch candies to make the candy kabobs. Or mix and match and create kabobs with all the same flavors.
I’m sure my kids will convince me to make these easy homemade summer slushies every day until school starts and it seems like the perfect way to say goodbye to summer!
