4th of July Ideas

Hi all! I'm very excited for the Fourth of July holiday this year because C & I will be traveling to Rhode Island to spend the long weekend with C's family! Since I'm kind of known as the "baker" of the group, I wanted to have a list of ideas for the kitchen. C's younger cousins are really into baking so I thought many of these would make for fun activities.

Thanks to pinterest, the ideas are endless! Here are a few of my favorites, and hopefully you will be able to draw some inspiration for your own July 4th get together!

These are so fun! I have yet to meet a person
who doesn't love Rice Krispie treats!

I am determined to make this amazing cake.
I have even done a DIY mini cake-bunting banner
using these free printables to put on top!

These dipped marshmallows couldn't be easier to make!
Plus I'm thinking with kiddos, these will be quick
enough to keep their attention until they're done.

Everyone loves decorated sugar cookies! These are a little
ambitious, but there are some fun "Fireworks cookies"
in the July Martha Stewart Living magazine
that seem much easier to decorate!

I also love to add decorations and there are so many free printables that creative ladies have been kind enough to share with us! I know I could never create any of those things so I'm grateful for the people that can!

Use these to put on top of your cupcakes!

Make a banner, invites, water bottle stickers
and more from this printables set!

Use these free printables from TomKat Studio
to create a topper and wrapper for your cupcakes!

As you can see, there is a ton of inspiration out there! Thank goodness for Pinterest. I hope to be making a few of these treats over the weekend, and I'll be sure to take pictures!
