4th of July Snack Ideas

It is fun to add a little something special into the kids’ snacks, especially on holidays!

A special decoration turns something ordinary into something celebratory.

One way I do this with a minimal time investment is by adding in paper decorations with toothpicks. The toothpicks can be purely decorative, or they can be functional as with these fruit snacks, to avoid messy fingers.

Washing strawberries and blueberries

For the 4th of July, you probably want to serve something with red, white, and blue colors. Fruit is perfect for this, as there are many red fruits to choose from (apples, watermelon, strawberries, raspberries, etc.) and blueberries are a favorite.

Chop up fruit into little ramekins for individual-sized servings and top with star toothpicks. Punch white stars from cardstock using the Fiskars Star Pop-Up Punch and glue to top of a toothpick. Insert a couple into each dish for super easy patriotic embellishments!


Tortilla wraps make great snacks and it is easy to turn these tuna roll-ups into firecrackers for the 4th!

Continue around the entire circle until you have a lit fuse shape. Repeat the same process with yellow cardstock using the Fiskars Medium Circle Squeeze Punch. Layer the shapes together with a toothpick in between. Insert the toothpick into the roll-ups for the cutest firecracker snack.
