As the hot days of summer approach and you feel like your kids are always asking for something to drink, why not create a summer mascot on a handy drink dispenser? 
Kids will flock to this cute way to wait on themselves. 
How?  Create face parts from your computer, print off and cut out. 
Then tape onto your drink dispenser for the day.
Tip:  don’t add ice to the dispenser.  If you use computer generated parts, the ink will run as condensation forms on the dispenser.  An ice tray in the freezer or an ice bucket next to the dispenser is a better route to go to prevent your mascot’s colors from running.
Or…create individual

Drink Glass Buddies

Kids can get in on the act by looking through magazines for eyes, noses and mouths.
Put all the parts they cut out in a large container or envelope.
 Children can create their own drink glass buddy for the day by picking out the combination of face parts from the pile collected.  They could name their buddy too.  Everyone will know which glass is whose and you only have one glass to wash per person at the end of the day!

Have fun!
