Dollhouse Miniature Slushie


We are coming the end of a long hot summer and around here that means it is time to go to the fair! And what trip to the fair is complete without some summer fair food. This week thought the dolls might like to cool off with a nice cold Slushie!



I asked my teenage son what color he thought of when I he thought of Slushies and he said blue so that is the color we are making in the video. Of course you can make any color you want to. So just pick your favorite and follow along.

This project takes just a few materials. First we do need a cup of some kind to put the slushie in. I used the top to a dried up bottle of tacky glue. Look around and I am sure you will find something to use. You could even make some paper cups using printables you can find online.

Next we need the two components to make our slushie- colored craft sand and Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. You will also want a colored paper clip or something similar for a straw.

You also need something to work on (I like aluminum foil for this) and a toothpick to mix up the ingredients.

Start by measuring out enough sand to fill your cup about 2 times. This really isn't a lot so err on side of a bit too much rather than not enough. Add the Dimensional Magic just a few drops at a time and mix well. You are looking for a rather thick mixture that will hold its shape when you mound it into the cup. Not too thick (too hard to get it into the cup) and not too thin (won't hold its shape) it is really something you will do by feel rather easily.

Now use the toothpick to move the sand mixture into your cup and make a nice mound on top. Carefully insert the paper clip and get it where you want it to be. You can't change this once the mixture dries to be sure now.

Set your slushie aside to dry over night. I found I had to prop mine up because the paper clip made it too top heavy to stand up on its own.

Once the mixture is dry you can use a pair of wire cutters to clip off the excess paper clip and you have a slushie for the dolls in your dollhouse.

These are soooo easy to make and take so little in the way of materials. If you make some be sure to show me a picture I want to see them!
