Big Brother was beyond excited to drink this simple Patriotic Punch I made for the kids this 4th of July! It is just 100% fruit punch, ice, and Blue Gatorade. Baby Sister was also thrilled to drink hers- I stuck a straw in it & held it for her since she is only 18 months old. She cried when I took it away to quick grab something.
The kids also enjoyed eating this Patriotic-inspired snack idea. I cut up watermelon in pieces and shook sprinkles on top. Using the 4th f July party printables pictured below, I used my 2′ craft punch to cut them out and glue on to Popsicle craft sicks. Big Brother loves marshmallows so I stuck the decorated craft sticks in marshmallows. Even though they are brand new, I still prewashed them before using them for this project. He thought it would be fun to use his decorated craft stick as a fork to stab his watermelon with- so cute! Baby Sister didn’t seem to fond of the marshmallows (can’t say I blame her!), but sure did love them sprinkles!!! Watermelon is by far both their favorite snack.
