4th of July Roundup - Fast Food and Fun Projects

Hosting a last minute get-together for the 4th?  A roundup of easy finger foods and simple projects to keep kids entertained!  Start with this Blueberry Sparkle Punch - just use red, white and blue sugar crystals to rim the glasses!

Finger Foods - use star-shaped cookie cutters!

More easy, festive and fun finger food - the kids can help you make them!

And finally - Fireless Sparkler Wands!  You'll need popsicle sticks, curling ribbon in assorted colors and a container of assorted sized sticker-backed foam stars.  Cut the curling ribbon to varying lengths and curl.  

Let the kids mix and match colors.  Take 2 large stars and remove the backing from one.  Lay the tip of the popsicle stick in the middle.  Remove the backing of the second large star and "sandwich" the popsicle stick between the two stars (press firmly to seal it well).  

Bundle together the ribbons and tie the center of the bundle around the popsicle stick to make a firm knot. Take small stars and stick to the hanging ends of some of the ribbons.

Happy Fourth of July!
