Our yellow crocus bloomed yesterday. And our copious amounts of daffodils are beginning to bubble up from the thawed ground in our front yard. It’s one of my favorite times of year, seeing all our spring flowers make their appearances again, so I’m feeling happy as a minion. It’s their song right, “Happy”?!
Springtime always makes me want to play outside. It most definitely makes my kids want to put their shorts on and spend the excess energy they have from being cooped up indoors for most of the winter. What about you?
That’s why I jumped on this opportunity to showcase Canada Dry and how their bubbly Ginger Ale can help you throw a simple celebration in mere minutes. I decided to focus on a playdate for my daughter since I’d been wanting to try THIS bubble craft I saw on Pinterest recently. I had a couple of Rubbermaid containers leftover from when I experimented with making my own shampoo and conditioner (that task was not nearly so successful as these fun bubbles). I cut the bottom off the containers and used leftover rubber bands from asparagus bunches I’d bought at the grocery to adhere the washcloths to the bottom. Then I mixed together our regular dish soap with water in an IKEA dish and done! Could not have been simpler or more fun.
The floats are just vanilla ice cream topped with a few frozen blackberries and the Canada Dry Ginger Ale®. This version uses original Canada Dry, but I can’t wait to try their limited-edition Blackberry flavor when it’s in stock at my Walmart. The drink is very refreshing… a lighter, springy version of a more traditional root beer float. I also set out a few store-bought snacks I found at Walmart… in the shape of butterflies in keeping with the spring theme for a little girls’ playdate.

Now excuse me while I go outside to enjoy these floats and homemade bubbles in the warm spring air!
