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"!
