Easy DIY Unicorn Kids Party Drinks!

Hey All!

Spring time is around the corner and you know what that means right? It’s the time of year when kids tend to have a lot of their birthday parties and themed parties. I know we all try to make kids happy by giving them all the tasty treats and drinks they want at these parties, but this year I’m taking a healthier stand with the drinks for my parties. Water will be replacing all the sugary drinks at our kids parties and it’s such an easy drink fix. The kids at my niece’s upcoming unicorn party are going to be drinking NESTLÉ® PURE LIFE® 8oz “Share-a-Smile™” Kid Designed Edition waters. Getting kids to drink water can be a challenge, but thankfully the folks at NESTLÉ® PURE LIFE® believe that water can and should be fun! I couldn’t agree more! They recently launched the new Nestlé Pure Life Kid Designed Edition, which feature designs from the brand’s 2016 “Share Your Smile” contest. From a panda and his pals floating through the sky, to a surfing hippo, to friends frolicking at the beach–each bottle has a fun design that will fit perfectly into any party. I’ve incorporated them easily into our unicorn party, as you can see in the pictures.

Nestlé Pure Life Kid Designed Edition water bottles are a convenient size for families on the go making it easy for kids to stay hydrated throughout the day. They are also perfect for easy clean up for a party. They are available in 8 different designs created by kids, Nestlé Pure Life Kid Designed Edition bottles are a great way to make healthy hydration fun for not only kids, but the entire family.

In case you didn’t know, replacing a single 12-ounce, 140 calorie sugar sweetened beverage with water each day for a year can cut more than 65 cups of sugar from one’s diet. Kids have many choices when it comes to beverages and, unfortunately, research suggests that water is not always top of mind. One recent study found that more than half of US kids are inadequately hydrated[1]. Other findings highlight that up to 75 percent of kids report not drinking any water before school[2] and that roughly 25 percent of kids report not drinking any water on two consecutive days3.There is no reason why kids can’t drink water at parties instead of sugary drinks. Let the birthday cake be the sugar they get and the drinks be water. No need for double the sugar!

I could serve these cute small water bottles as they are, but to give them a cute unicorn touch, I added these super simple DIY unicorn bottle toppers to sit at the top of the bottle. It makes the bottle look like little unicorns. You can DOWNLOAD and print out this FREE PRINTABLE HERE and do the same for your own unicorn themed kids parties.

You just print them out onto white card stock and cut them out with some scissors or your craft cutting machine. You wrap the bottom flaps into a circle and tape the flaps together. You place them on the bottle and your done. Beyond easy I know!

They’ll fit right in with your unicorn party decor!

We have a lot of unicorn fun going on for our party including these DIY unicorn horn glasses, which are just paper glasses we had bought for New Years and cut the 2017 off. We cut out some unicorn horn shapes and just glued them onto the glasses with a glue dot.

We also got these cute color in unicorns the kids can have fun drawing in…

And cute unicorn toys and giant confetti dots all over the table. It’s so much unicorn fun and the Nestlé Pure Life Kid Designed Edition waters are the perfect edition to the party!

I hope our fun party inspires you to swap out the sugary drinks with some water this year as well.
