Once a week our church has an after school program for kids in our city. We have a Bible study time, games, life-skills class, and then feed them a homestyle meal. I can think of very few life skills more important than making your own specialty coffee drinks … ha! The girls were ECSTATIC when we told them what we were doing in our class that day. Here are a few things I did to put together the activity.
I designed these order forms for each girl (and boy) and then printed out recipes for each drink on thicker paper. I kept the options simple and included a non-coffee drink. There are hundreds of recipes on Pinterest. I would recommend using a lot more ice than the recipes call for if you want a smoothie texture. Ours turned out more like an iced coffee, than the Frappuccino texture I was wanting. Here are the ones I used:
I then made 100 cups of cold brew coffee. Super simple way to have a large amount of STRONG coffee. Ground coffee in water, refrigerated for 24 hours, stirred once half way through, and then strain it before you use it in your drinks!
I ordered plastic cups, dome lids, and straws from Amazon. They had these specialty sauces at Walmart! You can find them in the ice cream topping section of your store. Be sure to buy the SAUCE and not the SYRUP.
Once you get your order forms in, mark the cups with a sharpie and go to work! The recipes were so simple the girls barely needed any help. Our Youth Pastor’s Wife and I ran the blenders.
You could use this activity for a party, school fundraiser, etc. So many fun ideas! Let us know if you try any of these drinks with your group!
Hello friends! These past few months I’ve been updating my Master Bedroom. I videoed the entire process and am excited to share the final results!

Happy One Year Anniversary to Mother Hen Five! We are so honored that you came along for the ride! Our family has grown quite a bit in the last five years, we’ve added a few sons-in-law and many grandkids. Christmas photo cards have become quite a challenge, so to make life a little easier we decided to have New Year’s cards made! It gives us a few weeks to have everyone in town and have our pictures professionally done. We have used our family-friend Alonna for two years now and love her! She is so sweet and patient with this bunch! The babies love her and you can’t ask for much more. Enjoy some photos from our shoot …
If you’d like to contact Alonna for your own photo project you can reach her through Facebook!! https://www.facebook.com/photographybyapb/
