Rainbow Sprinkle Rimmed Milk Bottles – Fancy Party Glasses for Kids
Every New Year’s Eve we get together with two of our nearest and dearest family friends. We have kept this tradition alive and strong for years now and I look forward to it every year. We all have kids and as the kids have gotten old enough to “get” the excitement and Times-Square-ball-dropping-fun I love finding fun things to add to the revelry. I picked up a set of milk bottles with straws and figured I would put milk in them for our younger guests.
My idea was to make some bright and colorful toasting glasses for the kids to use at midnight. While the adults usually have their beverage of choice (with champagne on occasion), I thought it would be fun to give the kids a glass of milk to use for some toasting of their own. And why stop at JUST a milk glass? What’s exciting about that?! So I decided to jazz them up a bit.
We needed to make a paste to make the sprinkles stick to the mouths of the jars.
Here’s what you’ll need:
3 TBSP confectioner’s sugar
1/2 TSP water
Bottle of rainbow non-pareil sprinkles
To make the paste, simply combine the sugar and the water together. You may need to add a little (and only a little) more water to your sugar… just be careful not to make it to runny. You need a thick-yet-pliable paste.
We dumped the sprinkles in a small bowl and then dipped the bottle rim into the bowl, swirling them around.
Here’s a video I took to show how easy it was!
Adding milk was going to be a tad tricky – we didn’t want to risk getting the sprinkles wet because then the colors would start to run. We thought to grab a funnel and that worked like a charm!
The end result was simply fabulous! Lily’s eyes lit up when we showed these to her. I can’t wait to serve these to the kiddos on NYE! They would make a great addition to any party or get together when you want to give the kids a little bit of pizazz to their drinks!
