A Winter Escape
Fruit Kabobs On toothpicks, skewer pieces of pineapple, mango, guava and other tropical fruit. Serve with yogurt or fruit dip.
Sensational Slush Fill a small yogurt container two-thirds full with juice or pop. Cap with lid and place in freezer for one and a half hours. Then, mix with fork every half-hour or so until to desired consistency.
Dripless Popsicles Dissolve one package of pineapple Jell-O powder (or any other flavor) in 1 cup boiling water. Stir in 1 1/4 cups juice. Pour into molds and freeze.
Celery Boats Make your own little sailboats by stuffing pieces of celery with Cheese Whiz, cream cheese or peanut butter. Sprinkle on sunflower or sesame seeds. Using a toothpick, insert a cucumber wedge for a sail.
Kitchen Sandbox Spend a day at the beach! Partly fill a large plastic tub with cornmeal, rice or colored macaroni, which has been sprinkled with a few drops of food coloring, mixed well and spread out to dry. Then, use cups, spoons, colanders, sieves, etc. to dig, scoop and measure the "sand."
Souvenir T-shirt Mix up some fabric paint to design your own Hawaiian souvenir! Mix Kool-Aid powder into small bottles of white glue. Squeeze glue onto T-shirt (or paper) to make puffy designs. Color will darken as it dries.
Hula Hoopla Using a hula hoop, try to out-swivel your friends by swinging it around your hips the most times.
Tickle Trunk Don't forget to dig into your "Tickle Trunk" to dress Hawaiian!
