Drink: DIY Ecto-Cooler

I have vivid childhood memories of sipping on Hi-C Ecto-Cooler juice boxes and tossing back Capri Suns. With our 90s week coming to an end, I thought I’d combine the look and flavors of my favorite 90’s bevvy to create one ultimate thirst-quenching throwback drink mash-up! With a touch of Halloween green, too! 😉

That’s not all though, you an add your own Ecto-Cooler flair with our ghost dress-up printable! It includes a full set of more-sweet-than-spooky emoji ghosties, plus accessories you can use to dress-up and costume your ghosts. We made printed ours as stickers and colored them with markers, but you can also make puppets, add them to a cardboard haunted house, or even make a set of DIY temporary tattoos!
