Kids will stare wide-eyed as they watch clear water or soda transform into a vibrant color? Plastic party cups, food coloring, ice, and any clear drink (I used Sprite, Fresca and Ginger Ale). Place 2 to 3 drops of food coloring at the bottom of each party cup and let dry. Just before serving the drinks, fill each cup with ice to hide the food coloring. While each child watches, pour the drink over the ice, and the clear water or soda will magically turn into a color as it fills their cup! Use different colors of food coloring so that the kids wont know what color to expect from their magic soda.
In clear plastic cups, put a drop of red or green food coloring and let dry overnight. Then bring cups to the table filled with ice and let the kids watch as you pour in Sprite or water and watch their excitement as the drink turns to red or green. Just a little bit of Christmas Magic!
