Fruit Sparklers - Great for the 4th of July!

We made these easy, fun, and healthy treats for a playdate at the beach, but they are of course perfect for the Fourth of July!

Fruit Sparklers

Star shaped cookie cutter
wooden skewers
kitchen shears or scissors

 1. Cut your watermelon into rounds and punch out star shapes using the cookie cutter.

2. Lace blueberries and/or grapes onto the skewers, leaving enough room at the top for the watermelon star.

3. Snip off the sharp end of of the skewer with kitchen shears. This just makes it a little safer to eat for younger ones.

4. Top of the skewer with the watermelon star. Enjoy! Using different shaped cookie cutters makes this treat adaptable for many occasions. Topping them with a butterfly or a flower would be great for a girls' birthday party!
