21 Patriotic Treats for Kids

With 4th of July just around the corner I have been eyeing so many delicious treats over on Pinterest and many of them are perfect for kids. We love making a big deal out of Independence Day, going to the local Old Poway Park to play old fashioned games like sponge toss and pie eating contests with plenty of crafts to take home. The kids get to enjoy things like snow cones and kettle corn there.... we mostly eat healthy but for holidays I let them have the special treats that the rest of the year I deem unhealthy. This year I thought we would try our hand at making some festive Red White and Blue treats so I began pinning and before you know it I had way too many to choose from. Now I need your help in deciding which of these treats we will make for the 4th of July!
