Fun tailored for your littles!

Memorial Day is right around the corner, Monday, May 25th to be exact, and this year will look a little different. While you likely won't be hosting a party at your house or going to a friend's cook out, it's a chance to teach your kids about how to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Military.

One thing we know for sure is you'll likely be looking for fun ideas on what to cook with your family. We’ve got a few kid-friendly (healthy-ish) recipes that you’ll love to create with your little people!

Magical Fruit Wands

Now your kiddos can create a snazzy snack that might just cast some spells but is also good for them. All you need is watermelon, blueberries, wooden skewers and a star-shaped cookie cutter! Check out the recipe here!
