Before we start the weekend, I thought I'd share a couple festive things that I did last year.
Red, white (clear), and blue ice cubes.
Simple yet festive. All I did was fill up some ice cube trays with some cut strawberries and some blueberries, added water, and froze. A few hours later and I had festive water!
Bomb pop wine sparkler.
Add some of your favorite wine, a bomb pop, and a sparkler and you've got yourself a festive and fun drink!
So easy and so delicious! My friend first introduced me to these and they're so easy to make. Just cut the stems off the strawberries, core them a little, and fill with homemade cheesecake filling. Crumb some graham crackers, sprinkle on top, and try not to eat them all before your guests arrive!
Blueberry pancakes and strawberries.
Take regular pancakes and add blueberries. Serve with a side of strawberries.
You can find exact instructions on Pinterest but the basic gist is to tape a bunch of straws together and make a "firework" pattern. Put some red paint and blue paint on a plate and let your kid go to town. Add some glitter for an extra special touch!
Fourth of July inspired cupcakes.
These cupcakes are the EASIEST! All I did was bought a cupcake mix from the store, made the cupcakes according to the instructions on the box, and then frosted them with vanilla frosting. I cut up some strawberries and then arranged the blueberries and strawberries on top of the cupcakes to look like a flag. Easy peasy and super festive!
No Independence Day would be complete without some fireworks... of the safe for children kind!
Pretty self explanatory :)
