The other day, I had a house full of giggling 11 year olds. When Lisa has friends over, she makes a itinerary of activities that they can do! She wants every minute that they are at our house to full of fun. Lisa made a slip n slide at of garbage bags and made slickers for each girl so they would really move on the slide.
She filled bowls full of water, so they would have easy access to fill their water guns and placed the sprinkler underneath the trampoline. So you can imagine that she wanted a treat to fill the requirements of an amazing play date. I really think that you can’t go wrong with strawberries and whip topping! This is so good and so easy to make!
The tweens loved it but I also think it would be great for any special occasion!
