Supplies:
Funny Face Straw Toppers Template 1 and Template 2, printed on white card stock
Bendable straws (the bendable ones work better to get the funny face lined up with your face when drinking)
Scissors
Crayons (markers, colored pencils)
Glue
Glitter
Hole puncher

Directions:
Cut out the faces, including the inside of the glasses, and the small rectangular pieces (1 per funny face). Color and decorate the faces. Punch a small hole on the dotted line of the mouth and on the dot of the small rectangular piece. On the small rectangular piece, fold the opposite end of the punched hole down 1/2″ from the end. Glue that 1/2″ to the back of the face, right above the punched hole of the mouth. Insert your straw through the hole in the mouth and through the hole on the back rectangle piece. Place straw in your milkshake and drink.

These straw toppers make drinking any glass of milk, shake, or smoothie so much more fun!

The honey adds a tinge of sweetness, but you could probably even do without that ingredient too. Using frozen strawberries is a much healthier way to make a milkshake, since then you can do without the ice-cream, and blended with milk it makes the perfect shake consistency.

My girls don’t have any trouble drinking milk (they have a glass every morning, but True is mildly allergic so she has a glass of soy milk in the mornings), so they get extra excited when they see me blending up a shake for them (and they had two helpings for snack time this particular afternoon). ¬†Between their glass of milk at breakfast and their milkshake this afternoon, they sure got a load of calcium, protein, and vitamin D (and other good stuff milk has) in them. ¬†Then, add the funny face straw toppers and we were all laughing at the silliness that was ensuing from all the silly characters. We had a librarian, professor, cool guy, and a glamour girl, and everyone was getting into it, but it was especially funny to watch Glow because she was being the funniest of them all

    I thought True was allergic to dairy? Did she get over her allergy?

    • Rubyellen says:

      She still is mildly allergic to it, but it never stops her from eating it in yogurt, shakes, ice cream, pizza, and if it’s baked and cooked in something. It’s rare that her tongue will itch from it these days, it itches more when it’s just milk all by itself (so she’s the only one in the morning that has a glass of soy milk), but with something like a milk shake or ice cream she never complains probably because she’s likes that particular thing so much.
