Fourth of July snacks

To celebrate our fine country’s independence, we had a little cook out at my parent’s house. (my mom actually called it a “sausage fest”…hum…) Anyway, I was in charge of the forth of July snacks, especially snacks the kiddos would like.
I ran over to pinterest, what if it was a place and we could actually GO THERE! Anyway…I got on pinterest and looked up snacks for the 4th. I came across these beauties and gave it a whirl!
They were a huge hit! And the kids helped me make them, which was great since I am trying to limit their tv. We made red, white and blue kabobs and fourth of July trail mix! So easy, so fun and super quick! Great fourth of July snacks!
