Patriotic Fruit Firecrackers

On July 4th, we had a friend come over with her daughter for a holiday playdate and I wanted to make all the girls a fun and festive snack. All we had in the fridge was watermelon and blueberries, so after a quick search on Pinterest, I decided to make Patriotic Fruit Firecrackers.

Now, I don’t know who came up with this cute idea, but the girls absolutely loved it. I honestly think their favorite part was just eating the fruit off the stick!! I mean, who doesn’t love a fruit kebab!

These are fun, festive, tasty and an inexpensive way to celebrate the American traditions of July 4th. What’s your favorite holiday treat? Let me know in the comments below!
