4th of July Party + DIY Popsicle Holder
This is one of my favorite times of the year. School is just about to end. The bathing suits are rolling out. Long sunny days are here to stay.
With 4th of July on the horizon, we are dreaming of fireworks, family summer get-togethers and of course, yummy food.
We have lots of hungry folks in our family, so having tasty and filling snacks are a MUST! In search of the perfect snacks for my 4th of July Family Party, I of course headed to Walmart for some Americana Inspiration. There I picked up the 12 pack Pepperoni HOT POCKETS® brand sandwiches, EDY’S® OUTSHINE® Fruit & Veggie Bars in Strawberry Rhubarb and EDY’S® OUTSHINE® Fruit Bars in Creamy Coconut for some festive and colorful Americana snacks! I mean how could you go wrong with cheesy HOT POCKETS® goodness and Frozen EDY’S® OUTSHINE® Bars on a hot 4th of July day?
HOT POCKETS® brand sandwiches are the perfect snack to fuel your summer day. Packed with premium meat and real cheese, HOT POCKETS® provide a great source of protein for your family. After a fun day of 4th of July festivities, cool down with EDY’S® OUTSHINE® Bars! Made with real fruit or fruit juice, you can enjoy all that summer has to offer with amazing flavor combinations, like the new Strawberry and Rhubarb Fruit & Veggie Bars! Shhh, don’t tell the kids that there’s veggies in there.
No party is complete without a FUN craft for the kiddos. So we made these easy DIY American Popsicle Holders for our EDY’S® OUTSHINE® Bars! Here’s how:
