Patriotic Fruit Wands will dazzle your Memorial Day, 4th of July or Labor Day Party!

Fruit wands mimic the look of sparklers, but are safer and much more delicious! This quick and easy snack is a huge hit with all ages. They include two of summer’s most beloved fruits… watermelon and blueberries.

4th of July Fruit Wands

In addition to watermelon and blueberries, you will need skewers and a star-shaped cookie cutter for this recipe. To create your wands, simply place about eight blueberries on each skewer. Top the skewer with a watermelon star (created using your cookie cutter). That’s it! Be sure to get the kids involved. They’ll love helping with this one!
