Magical Fruits Wands for Your Fourth of July Celebration

Share

Abracadabra, make fruit disappear! That's exactly what happened the day I made these Independence Day-inspired treats for the kids, turning a big dinner I made for Kenya and Chloe into them basically ignoring the meal and instead begging and pleading for more of these wands stacked with juicy watermelon and sweet blueberries. Watching their imaginative play at the dinner table, casting spells on each other and everything else in sight, was better than any game I could have come up with or paid for.

So this Fourth of July toss out the boxed ice pops and store bought desserts laden with corn syrup and food coloring and instead make your family something with a naturally sweet taste like these "magic" fruit wands. And if you want to see just how easy and fun they are to assemble, click here to watch Chloe make me "disapaww"!

    Love this idea and will be making it for the 4th! The new site is great, but I have a question…How do you get to view the previous day’s recipe? I usually check your site religiously, but once in a while I miss a day due to the craziness of life with twin 19 month old girls! Please let me know how to catch up! Thanks!
    PS – Can’t wait for your book to come out!

    The site looks very pretty, but it’s harder to follow chonologically in blog form now and (the larger issue) I follow by RSS–Articles are now broken up by generic boxes instructing me to ‘preview of publish my post to see how it will look on my blog’. When I get to the site, the recipe is there but it doesn’t seem to be playing well with Google RSS Feeder.

    Just thought I’d let you know In case there’s anything your designer can do. :)
