We had an amazing opportunity where we had a sneak peak of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Old School written by Jeff Kinney before it was released. I was ecstatic and did allot of little wiggly dances, I am an avid reader and maybe one of the book's BIGGEST fans! I've fallen in love with the fun and 'down with the kids' style or writing I giggle away at Greg Heffley's funny ideas and the quirky doodles gives a great visual to aid my imagination.
Here is an extract from: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School
'Life was better in the old days. Or was it? That’s the question Greg Heffley is asking as his town voluntarily unplugs and goes electronics-free. But modern life has its conveniences, and Greg isn’t cut out for an old-fashioned world. With tension building inside and outside the Heffley home, will Greg find a way to survive? Or is going “old school” just too hard for a kid like Greg?'
In our sneak peak we got to read about one of Greg Heffley's big ideas on running a lemonade stand. I found it so enjoyable and wanted to keep on reading. I love all his crazy ideas and how poor Rowley always seems to get caught up in the middle of it. I can resonate with both characters. We were also kindly given a lemonade recipe Which we had good fun making and can now share with all our readers. Being creative we had a go ourselves too:
So we had to make it ourselves too! Can't give our readers all the fun! We would suggest getting lots of colourful straws, cocktail umbrella's and cute plastic accessories to offer a tropical version and like most kids that's the best part!
Something I have done in the past is add slices of lemon into the ice cube tray before freezing, so every ice cube has a lemony taste! This could be done to many other drinks and is a good all round tip!
I had chosen the best lemonade bottle as it matched the lemons (obviously)
Even our ice tray is yellow!
It was very thirst quenching and I chilled ours in the fridge so for a hot day its a great drink to help you cool down.
Haven't got time to make today? why not pin this project for later?
So are you going to make some lemonade today?
