And we must have the greatest neighbourhood in Joburg. Nice people who care about the community and the environment. (One neighbour for example washed and desanitized the entire street's rubbish bins after a municipal strike a while ago.) Parents who want to create a place where kids can (occasionally) play carefree and safely outside in the street - like we used to as kids. We all realize we have something special here.
Anyway, long intro...This weekend we had our Neighbourhood Spring Party.
We braaied in the circle,
The kids had a jumping castle,
did some colouring in,
I made some Rainbow Lollies for the occasion. The recipy, (via Pinterest) can be found here: http://sandytoesandpopsicles.blogspot.com/2011/03/rainbow-fun-part-2-rainbow-pudding-pops.html
I think any vanilla pudding will do. I used small plastic cups iso the paper cups and the lollies came out quite easily. They were just a bit too much for the kids. I'll use the small yogurt cups as moulds instead next time we make something like this. They are just so easy and fun!
