    For the swizzle sticks:

    1.

    Start by drawing an eyeball in permanent marker on a ping-pong ball.

    2.

    Poke a hole in the bottom with a bamboo skewer or other sharp object.

    3.

    Stick the paper straw through the hole in the bottom of the eye pin-pong ball.

    For the punch:

    1.

    Bring the sugar, water and strawberry gelatin mix to a boil in a large pot.

    2.

    Stir in the pineapple juice, lemon juice and orange juice.

    3.

    Divide into 2 separate containers and freeze.

    4.

    Combine contents of 1 container with 1 bottle of lemon-lime soda in a punch bowl. Stir until slushy.

    5.

    Repeat for the other container if you need to make more.
