Setting up this drink station is easy. Gather your old mason jars (or a buy a new case at the grocery store), a few drink dispensers and some tall bottles. You’ll want a lime-filled tray for the mix-ins, and small white bowls for the berries, peaches and mint. Add striped straws and a few printables and you’re set. (For a grown-up, adults only event you can add shots of tequila, rum and vodka.)

While on vacation with the kids, every once in a while you might want some quite time–a moment to sit by the beach and relax. Those rare times can be hard to find without thinking ahead. Plan now and take some printable postcards for the kids to color and send to everyone at home.

Directions: Print out the postcards on thick cardstock paper. To be considered a postcard by the USPS, the paper needs to be as thick or thicker than an index card. If you don’t have paper this thick, you could always bring some envelopes to mail the postcards off in. Cut out the postcards and hand them off to the kids. The kids can pick their favorite one and draw the surroundings of their vacation. Let them add a little heart felt note on the back and mail away to their friend, cousin, or grandparent! A perfect way to add a little personal touch to a vacation moment.
