My tween daughter loves Big Time Rush. When we found out about the Kool Creations contest on Walmart's website here I knew she would really want to enter to win tickets for Big Time Rush. I sat down with her and we brain stormed about what we would create with some Kool-Aid. We decided to make our favorite candy corn in the fave colors of James, Kendall, and Carlos. I used a black tablecloth for Logan's fave color black since we couldn't really make that color with candy corn. I went to Walmart to purchase all of our ingredients we would need. We had so much fun! You can follow my shopping trip here.
On the Walmart Summer Creations page I saw an app mentioned called Shoparoo. This app is compatible with many different devices. I use an Android and so I downloaded it to that. Basically the app allows me to earn perks for myself and money for my school or charity of choice. I love using the app because it's so easy to scan in my receipts. It takes me like 5 seconds and the rewards are great.
Right now on Shoparoo there is a special deal that coincides with the contest. If I purchase at least $6 worth of Kool-Aid products at Walmart, Shoparoo will reward me with a coupon code for Big Time Rush tickets. A family four pack would only be $50 with that code! It's a great deal and can be used at any Ticketmaster kiosk, Ticketmaster.com or any Walmart location. I have to wait and see if we can go! I know my daughter wants to go really badly.
That evening we got together in the kitchen for a little mother-daughter time. I had a recipe that I've been using for years to make candy corn using Kool-Aid unsweetened drink mix. I knew that Kool-Aid mixed berry would be blue and Kool-Aid lemon-lime would be green. I made two batches of our favorite sweet treat, one in each color. My daughter wanted to have some girl friends over for a little Big Time Rush themed party the next day. We took a good picture of our creation and entered the contest. I will share my recipe in another post soon!
