Edible Fourth of July Activities for Grandchildren

The 4th of July is just a blink away.

This is always a fun time to have family picnics and get togethers. It’s a time for watermelon, Popsicles, and homemade ice cream.

If you’ll be having grandchildren over (or you’re going to their home), here are some ‘patriotic’ edible treats that would be fun to make with — or for — them.

Most of these recipes are fairly easy and could be made by neophyte cooks (with a little help from grandma of course!).

You could also make Rice Krispie treats, topped with red, white and blue sprinkles, and cut out using a star-shaped cookie cutter.  You could also dip them in white melted dipping chocolate before adding the sprinkles.  Yum.

What fun foods do you make for the 4th of July?
