Kids are so easy to trick. I don’t know if it is because their brains aren’t completely formed, yet, but you can totally trick them into thinking just about anything. Like, for instance, that a cup of red Sprite tastes nothing like Sprite and everything like strawberries.  Now I don’t know why you’d want to trick a kid with this because, as I have found, kids will automatically assign a flavor to something based on its color. Doesn’t matter if it tastes anything like that thing, if its the right color that’s what’s bouncing all over their taste buds.

If you’re wondering why there is a cat in this picture, you’ve obviously never owned a cat. They love stuff in glasses and cups. They’ll stick their hands in it and taste it. They’ll watch you out of the corner of their eye playing it cool and then knock that sucker over. Sometimes cats love to be jerks. :)

Because St. Patrick’s Day is sneaking up on us and because I’m uber cheap, I tried to find a way to bring rainbows into the day without spending tons of money or making something for the holiday that’s just going to hit the Goodwill pile the day after. These rainbow beverages were just the ticket! Simple, pretty and guaranteed to tickle the little ones. Rainbow Beverages Tutorial at Mom Spark.

    Nice quick and easy idea for St. Patrick’s Day Allison! I like it.
    And an answer to your question, I don’t really know why kids are so easily tricked either. But their brains are like sponges and they absorb everything, constantly gathering information. Perhaps it’s this eagerness to learn that sometimes allows them to believe the first thing that they see or hear? An intriguing inquiry…
