Fun Summer Ice Cubes for Kids

Staying cool in the summer is important. Getting kids to drink enough can be especially hard. It seems that every summer at least one of my boys gets a minor case of dehydration. The heat and blazing sun doesn’t seem to bother them.

My boys can and do spend hours outside playing sports. Most of the time I have to force them to come inside for a drink. I’m hoping these delicious ice cubes will do the trick in getting my boys to drink more. Give these ice cubes a try, see if they help your kids stay hydrated this summer.
