Basketball season has already been in full force here in San Antonio and when it’s basketball season that’s all this town likes to talk about. But…
IT’S MARCH!!!!!!! And in our house, things tend to get a little crazy around March. Not only did Luke just turn 3 on March 9th but it’s tournament time. Meaning it’s time for me to head out to Sam’s Club and get us some awesome treats to watch the games.
Walking through Sam’s I couldn’t help but notice the amazingly delicious 54 oz bags of Skittles sitting nicely on a big ole pallet in front of me. (Yes I just said, “big ole pallet”, something I picked up from my 3-year-old and can’t seem to stop saying.) I decided instantly that I had to “Pick the rainbow, Taste the rainbow” and make us some Skittles Slushies just in time for the tourney.
Before I left Sam’s I made sure I didn’t forget some lemon-lime soda that would be needed to make our Skittle Slushies.
First thing I did was separate the Skittles by color. This part of the party was fun getting the boys to try and separate Skittles without eating them all. Then came the part where I added the Skittles into the soda not thinking about how it would foam over if I didn’t pour some out first. Oh, boy did the kids like that one.
Now our house is fully prepared for the tournament and have plenty of amazing treats to eat and drink.

Oh, that's so cute. Skittle Popsicles. It sounds as if it's a lot warmer in San Antonio, no way would I be eating a popsicle up here in Canada. Enjoy!

I been seeing great ideas on how to incorporate skittles into snacks and now you've given me a great idea on how to incorporate into a drink[. I have never thought of that way but that is brilliant. Thanks for sharing this.

This looks so fun. With St. Patty's Day coming up, my boys and I just can't get enough of rainbow themed crafts and other play. And I am so excited to hopefully win my NCAA bracket competition!

I can see my hubby and little guy eating over half the skittles before we get them in the bottles. My hubby's favorite fruity candy is Skittles. I'll have to try this with the tropical ones, which he likes best.

I never used to eat Skittles much, but I do now that they are made vegan! I was so glad when the company decided to stop using gelatin in their recipe. They are just like I remember from my childhood! And this looks like a great idea!
What a fun, easy drink idea! I love the concept of adding Skittles flavors to a base soda, and I'm impressed that the sodas picked up the color of the candies so well. Looks like a fun party beverage for kids and adults alike! :9

We are so making these. What a perfect idea, especially for when it's crazy hot out. #client
