Patriotic Fruit Skewers

4th of July Fruit Skewers
If you are looking for a quick, easy and cute snack for the 4th of July then I have the thing for you! Red, white and blue fruit skewers! They were super simple to put together and I think they disappeared faster than it took me to make them. It’s great to see kids grab for these fun skewers rather than chips or cookies….pretty much a mom’s dream come true!

1 pint strawberries, washed, hulled and dried
Star shaped or mini marshmallows
1 pint blueberries, washed and dried
Wooden skewers

Thread strawberries, marshmallows and blueberries onto the wooden skewers in whatever red, white and blue pattern you desire. I did some with lots of strawberries, some with lots of blueberries….whatever you like.

    Love this! I went to buy the ingredients to make it but my Kroger doesn’t have the star marshmallows. Where did you get yours? Thanks so much!

      I found mine at Target in their seasonal section. Hope you can find them! They are infinitely cuter with stars but still work with mini’s.

        I actually was just at Target and did find them! I figured Target should have em :) Can’t wait to make these!
