Like champagne on New Years Eve, but no alcohol involved. Punch can be made a lot of different ways, but it usually involves fruit juice, soda, or ginger ale.

Punch can be a great way for kids to try new flavors of fruit. They may not want to eat pineapple or bananas, but they might like it in their juice. Another special addition that can be added, is ice cream! Think of it like a root beer float, only fruity. Kids will love it. Below is a variety of flavors to temp their taste buds.
