Whether you spend the holiday poolside, on the beach or at a barbecue, snacks to share with family and friends are a must. This year, why not let the kids help you prepare for the big event with one (or all!) of these festive Fourth of July treats. With your help, your children will not only make a delicious snack they can be proud of, but will also strengthen fine motor skills and hand eye coordination, reinforce math and reading skills, and learn how to follow directions. Best of all, you’ll be making memories to last a lifetime.

Firecracker Cookies: Made from cake mix, kids will have fun measuring and mixing these colorful cookies.

4th of July Marshmallow Pops: These marshmallow pops are coated in Almond Bark and dipped in colorful sprinkles.

Fruit Flag: Using a plastic knife, kids can peel and cut bananas and strawberries to make a healthy and festive snack.
