One of my favorite holidays is coming up.. you can read about the old school “words” and critical thinking skills I needed as a child in my town for the 4th of July [here.]
Are you looking for a fun activity to do with your kids for this fun holiday? Look no further and check out our Fun. Quick. Simple, 4th of July Food Flag.
I like keeping this activity as simple as possible! For the pound cake you can either make it yourself or there may be some already made pound cake (i.e., good ole Mrs. Lee) in your local grocery store. I also grabbed a can of whipped cream, rather than making my own, to allow it to be Quick.Simple.Fun for the adults in this house.
**Step 1**: Wash all of the fruit. Place the strawberries in one bowl and the blueberries in a different bowl.
**Step 2**: Remove the cores from all of the strawberries. Set them aside in a bowl.
**Step 3**: Take the poundcake and cut it into small cubes.
**Step 4**: Take 5 of the skewers and put about eight blueberries on each skewer and slide them to the top of the skewer.
**Step 5**: Once the blueberries are done, place one strawberry on the skewer and slide it towards the blueberries.
**Step 6**: Take one piece of cubed pound cake and slide it towards the strawberry.
**Step 7**: Continue this pattern until you have done three strawberries and three pieces of poundcake. Take the remaining skewers and start with a strawberry, then put on a poundcake cube, then a strawberry and complete the pattern until you have placed four strawberries and four cubes of poundcake on each skewer. You may have to play around with your pattern as some blueberries, strawberries, and poundcake cubes may not be the same size.
**Step 8**: Use the whipped cream and either put it in a separate bowl, or place some on plates for dipping the fruit and poundcake into!
