Fourth of July Fruit Skewers

By Central California Parent

This tasty treat is the perfect addition to any Fourth of July party. It is also a fantastic way to encourage kids and adults alike to eat more fruit on a day filled with hamburgers, chips and ice cream.

1. Alternate threading the raspberries and mini marshmallows on wooden skewers for 7 skewers (If you find the marshmallows sticking, soak the skewers in water for a couple of minutes)

2. On the next 5 skewers, thread the raspberries and mini marshmallows 2/3 of the way down. Thread the blueberries to complete the other 1/3 of each skewer.

3. Line your skewers up to create a flag. Adjust/add fruit so it all lines up evenly.

This is an easy treat for kids to help with as well as eat! Bonus points if you turn this treat into a counting lesson for younger kids!
