Sugar Cubes

My youngest and I were a little bored today so we decided to make our own sugar cubes.

They are SO easy to make!  My 5 year old did pretty much everything on her own.

What You'll Need:
- A bowl

- A fork and spoon

- 1 Cup of sugar

- 1 Tablespoon of water

- An ice cube tray

The How To:

- First pour your cup of sugar into the bowl

- Then make an indentation in the middle of the sugar and pour your Table spoon of water into it.

- Next, use your fork to mix the sugar and water. It should have the consistency of wet sand....like the kind used to make sand castles.

- Now, take your spoon and fill up the spots on the ice cube tray.

- Be sure to use the back of your spoon to really compact the sugar in each mold (that's where I had to help out).

- Then we let them sit out for about an hour to dry out and harden(if you live in a humid place you will need to let them sit out longer)

-When they were ready we turned the ice cube tray upside down and gently tapped the sugar cubes out.

And now they are ready to eat!
