Fourth of July Recipes for Kids!

Greetings everyone and Happy Independence Day!

Today is such a special holiday for all Americans and we are so excited to bring you a great Nanny Tip of the Week to celebrate! With all of the fun activities that are bound to happen today, one of the main highlights of the day is bound to be the food! With barbecues, cook-outs, tailgating, and picnics, having the right snacks and treats for this special holiday is a must. And to top it off, having kid-friendly foods is also essential! Take today as an opportunity to bring your kids in on the fun of celebrating by having them help you in the kitchen with a few of these great recipes. Enjoy!

1. Firecracker Sugar Cookies - This recipe is not like any regular sugar cookies as it is topped with red and blue pop rocks! These cookies are sure to be a hit with the kids as they notice the "fireworks" in their mouth as they take a bite. You have to give this recipe a try!


2. Patriotic Puppy Chow - You are definitely going to need several little ones to help you with this recipe. Plus, the red, white and blue are sure to shine through with this sweet treat! If you enjoy vanilla and strawberry flavors, you are certainly going to enjoy this recipe.


3. Fro-Yo Covered Berries - All you need is fruit, skewers and some yogurt to make this recipe happen. Not only is this recipe super delicious, but it also has that daily dose of fruit that every child needs. Also, feel free to mix and match fruit to make this recipe happen!


4. Patriotic Pasta - Colored pasta? How cool is that?! This recipe is super simple and brightens up the classic pasta with alfredo sauce meal. Stick with the theme and you are sure to be a hit at the next cookout with your kids!


5. Flag Waffles - Need a fun Fourth of July breakfast idea? Be sure to give this one a try! Jazz up your favorite waffle recipe by adding some fruit to symbolize the American flag. Check out the link below to give it a try!


That's going to be all from us at Chicago Collegiate Nannies today! Thank you so much for reading and please enjoy the tip we've provided for you. Have a happy and safe Fourth of July and we'll see you next week!
