Making fun snacks with your children is a great way to celebrate any holiday. Here are a few fun and easy things you can do:
Star Spangled Ice Cream Sandwiches: Children love to see how sprinkles stick. Buy blue and red sprinkles, let your pre-made ice cream sandwiches sit for 5 minutes and then ROLL them in the sprinkles, freeze for 10 minutes and enjoy.
Graham Cracker Flags: Children can practice small muscle skills by spreading softened cream cheese on a graham cracker. Using strawberry jam they can ‘paint’ their stripes. Then watch how they count blueberries to add 50 stars (if they fit lol) to complete their flag.
Patriotic Popcorn: Nothing screams fireworks like dumping candy and popcorn into a bowl. Your kids can help choose the red and blue candies that can be added to popcorn, nuts and other treats. Stir and Serve.
Celebration Sparkling Water: We know how children love something sparkly! Replace their soda with sparkling water and let them sweeten with fresh fruit. Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries make a great holiday choice.
Firework Fruit Kabobs: Fruit kabobs for the ambitious. Watermelon on the 4th is a national staple. Cut them into stars and let your children thread them onto skewers followed by some fun fresh blueberries.
Enjoy and have an amazing day with your children!
