Pond Scum

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Disgusting-looking punch for children's Halloween parties. Very easy and inexpensive. It is hard to convince kids to drink it, but they love it once they've tried it. It's too sweet for most adults. It helps that we live on a lake and say we've just drawn it from the lake."

This came out great! My kids have asked for me to make it often!!!Thanks for a great easy punch!

Easy, cheap and yummy. Had great effect and the kids loved it. Love that it has few ingredients. So easy to put together yet has such wow factor.

Made this for the school party last year (multi age). The kids who were in the class last year have told the new kids about it, but won't give away the secret of what it is. Of course, I'm maki...

Great punch. Wouldn’t change a thing...

Looks spooky when made! The combo of the three ingredients made the punch bubble up soooo much, it really looked like scum.
