The Fourth of July will be here before we know it, and I’ve been on the lookout for Independence day and Fourth of July recipes. I want to make things my kids and my friends’ little ones will like. My extended family can also be a bit hard to please, so I’m aiming for simple.
I want to make some simple red, white and blue treats to help my family and friends celebrate the 4th of July!
Here are five kid-friendly Fourth of July recipes and treats that are as delicious as they are easy to prepare!
