Wednesdays are my son’s favorite days at camp because that’s when the sno-cone truck comes!
But with easy snow cone syrup recipe, he can have the icy treats any day of the week! (Oh and is it sno-cone or snow cone?)
Not only am I sharing the recipe, but I also have a video tutorial for how you can make these cute customized labels for your sno-cone syrup bottles.
If you think office supplies and parties don’t go hand-in-hand, then you need to check out all the amazing labels available from Online Labels. You’ll find all kinds of shapes, sizes and colors of labels for shipping, printing, packaging, branding and crafting. Even labels for sno-cone syrup bottles!
Our group of crafty bloggers has come up with 20 different ideas for how to use labels at parties. You can find all the tutorials at Crafty Hangouts, or watch the live crafting videos on this YouTube playlist.
Online Labels has a free tool that you can use to design and print your labels. But for my project, I decided to break out some of my rubber stamps and ink.
See how I did it here:
Other supplies I used for this craft:
- Plastic squeeze bottles (You can find them at Walmart, grocery stores or Amazon)
- Stampin’ Up markers (You could also use Copic markers) or an ink pad
- Stampin’ Up Tart & Tangy stamp set (This set is retired, but I found similar ones here and here)
- Assorted washi tape, including Amy Tangerine mini Mixtape
And now for the recipe…
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 packet unsweetened powdered drink mix, such as Kool-Aid
- In a saucepan, combine the water and sugar.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes.
- Remove from heat and add powdered drink mix, stirring until dissolved.
- Allow to cool.
- Using a funnel, pour into plastic bottles or jars. Refrigerate for up to 1 month.
- Serve over shaved ice.
As you can see, we made up several batches of sno-cone syrup: Tropical Punch, Strawberry, Cherry, Orange and Green Apple.
We went a birthday party over the weekend, and we we gave Jackson’s little friend his own sno-cone maker, some straws and sno-cone cups, plus an assortment of homemade syrups.
We love coming up with creative birthday gifts for kids, and I’d say this definitely qualifies!
My guy certainly loves his homemade sno-cone!
