Hi friends! How was your weekend? I hope you guys were having fun over the weekend. We live in Ontario, Canada. We always have a long winter here, so when summer comes, we are going crazy outside to play.

Summertime BBQs and garden parties are very common on weekends and holidays here. As my kiddo is taking her summer break now, we are having so much fun to do some cooking together.

Today, I round-up some easy drinks and snacks that we could do with kids. Let’s try them out and cool off summer with these easy and delicious recipes.

Freshly Squeezed Lemonade

My kid always loves helping me in the kitchen. By starting to work on some simple tasks, she is learning the kitchen technique gradually. This simple and delicious freshly squeezed lemonade is easily prepared by a kid.
