Jitter Juice Recipe and Poem
One of my most favorite ways to get those first day of school jitters out is to read the hilariously funny and unpredictable children’s book called, “First Day Jitters,” and then create the most delicious Jitter Juice Recipe to take away those butterflies in our bellies!
If you haven’t read this storybook yet, it is a must! I don’t want to spoil the ending for you but I will tell you that there’s a BIG surprise at the end. A surprise that will, without a doubt, help the little ones in your life through those first day jitters.
After you’ve read, “First Day Jitters” to your children, then you must make them this delicious Jitter Juice Recipe and read them the adorable poem! It won’t disappoint!
Whether you are making this tasty drink at home with your own kids or in the classroom, we have all the tips and tricks you need to make it an awesome experience for your kids, including a printable of the ingredients and a fun poem.
So, once you mix your delicious Jitter Juice, don’t forget the awesome Jitter Juice label (free label and recipe below) and pour! (We colored in the label with markers, but you could also print the design on colored paper.)
The kids LOVED making the Jitter Juice. Plus, did you know it’s a well known fact that adding a “special ingredient” of sprinkles helps to get those jitters out? 😉
As we sprinkle our special ingredient inside our tasty treat, we also recite our Jitter Juice Poem!
