Backyard BBQs are the traditional, all American way to celebrate our independence. We’ve talked about a number of ways to spruce up our yard and decor for the Holiday. But, what about the kids? Are you celebrating the 4th of July with children? Here are a few celebration ideas that are sure to be a HIT with the little ones, as well as us “grown ups”!
Candied popcorn is always a tasty treat! This 4th of July try adding a dash of food coloring to your recipe for a pleasingly patriotic variation to a staple treat. This recipe from The Idea Room suggests making two separate batches, then mixing the red and blue candied popcorn together.
This adorable variation of PB&J will have your kids eating healthy while enjoying a fun snack. Layer cream cheese, strawberry jam, halved banana slices and blueberries on top of your favorite toast to start your Independence Day off in the spirit.
I’ve seen it enough to know that there are few things more fun for kids than pouring and layering liquid. This interesting and tasty treat from Disney Family Fun will be an interactive hit with the youngsters at your 4th of July celebration.
Make this fun and simple twist to your ice cream sandwiches that the kids will LOVE! Add a popsicle stick at one end, then press sides into Red, White, and Blue sprinkles for a patriotic treat everyone will enjoy. *Hint… the cupcake liner will help deter some of the mess!
There is something magical about releasing loads of balloons into the sky. Not only does this look patriotic with the red and white balloons against a clear blue sky, but watching balloons fly off through the air reminds us of our Freedoms and why we love the USA.
