Fourth of July Wands Video



After making Fruit Wands for Chloe's birthday this year I was amazed at what a big hit they were with kids. All of the munchkins walked around our house casting magic spells on each other while eating the juicy fruit off their wands.

Wanting my kids to partake in the same magical excitement this Independence Day (and given the change of what fruit is now in season), I created these naturally red, white and blue Fourth of July wands. Just place the wands in tall cups on the buffet table at your holiday BBQ alongside all those other special holiday recipes you're craving. Then watch as the real magic happens when everything vanishes….everything that is except the smiles!

    We made the 4th of July fruit wands. My son really liked them. We brought them to a family gathering and I think he ate half of them! Fun activity to do with your kids. We had a lot of fun creating them. Thanks for sharing this great idea!

    Your daughter is adorable! It’s so funny to see the difference between your daughter and your son in your videos. I have two boys. :)

      I have to say, that given the accuracy of the soetns and colors used to represent the archangels that you must also have friends in high places;’keep up the great work.

    LOVE the website remake! Long overdue!
    One comment though – check on the links in the “pingbacks” at the end of a post. I was looking at Broccoli, Apricot, Tofu purree, and the pingbacks were about yeast infections not brewer’s yeast.

    I love to “pin” your recipes (really want to try these for the 4th) but am now having a hard time. Is it just me?

      The “pin it” button is at the bottom of each post! Below the recipe, to the right of the “print” button. Thank you for your feedback, we are still fine tuning things and I love to know what you want!

    So cute! I think I’ll have to stick them in slices of watermelon since my toddler can’t get enough watermelon lately.

    What kind of skewers do you use? I love this, but I am afraid of the kids poking themselves or each other!

      I find skewers at the craft store and grocery. Just the regular wooden or bamboo type.
