My girls love to help me in the kitchen. This weekend we are making a big bowl of strawberries for strawberry shortcake. All the berries needed to be washed, cored and sliced.  When my girls help me core the strawberries they often take too much off the top with a knife, or I am worried they might cut themselves with the sharp paring knife.  To this straw trick is the perfect solution.

They are sometimes called milkshake straws or smoothie straws. They are just a normal plastic drinking straw just with a bigger hole and stronger sides, they work great for this project.  The thin straws do not work as well and you will just get frustrated.

Watch our youtube video on How to core a strawberry with a straw, here.

You can use your hand your holding the strawberry in to push down on the berry. The straw will pop out of the top taking the core  and stem with it. If you do not get the straw right in the middle of the core you might have to do it again. But after a few it is easier to judge where the middle is and get it centered every time. My girls are 7 and 10 and did a huge bowl of berries all by themselves. Hope you enjoy this tip 🙂

Party tip, Keep bugs out of your drink at a BBQ or picnic by placing a muffin liner and straw over your cup, QUICK and EASY tip #bbq, #KeepBugsOut, #Drinks My girls were doing a “tea party” the other day. They wanted to make it all fancy they were cutting out circles of paper to put on top the drinks for lids.  Then my 9 year old had the idea to just use a cupcake liner instead…. wheels started to turn in my head and I thought WOW that is a great idea to use in the summer when you have a picnic or bbq outside and you want to keep bugs or leaves out of your drink.  Plus it helps you keep track of your own drink, such a simple and easy tip …perfect for summer. Keep bugs out of your drink at a BBQ or picnic by placing a muffin liner and straw over your cup, QUICK and EASY tip #bbq, #KeepBugsOut, #Drinks

You can just use a knife to cut a slit in the bottom of the cupcake or muffin liner or you can use a hole punch and punch a hole in the middle. Place the liner on top of the glass, wrap your hands around it on all edges and press down, this will make the liner form to the shape of you glass and keep it in place.

This is also a fun thing to do if you are having  THEME party, buy cupcake liners in that theme and your drinks instantly look more festive.
