Dig that notepad and pen out and let your hand run wild.


4) Make your ultimate milkshake!

Get that blender out of the kitchen cupboard and put it to good use! Whatever your favourite flavour, whether it be strawberry, banana, chocolate, or vanilla, gather an enormous amount of ingredients and shove them all in. Personal recommendations; 1) Ben & Jerry's Vanilla ice cream, 2) Marshmellows, 3) Cadbury's Dairy Milk, 4) Hundreds and Thousands, and 5) Some authentic Jersey cream milk!
