Oh yeah apple pie ...but you can't do that in 30 mins
You need to make sure you sing take me out to the ball game
Johnie is spot on! Nothing says the Fourth of July like picnic foods - although a bit puzzled about our British friends celebrating this particular day..oh well.Originally Posted by Johnie, post: 314707
Since you are going to play baseball...(not sure if you can get them) but think about peanuts (love those at the game when we go), lemonade, and maybe Cracker Jack (Carmel coated popcorn and peanuts...guess you could make that)
As long as we're talking baseball (THE National Pastime), and you want a slice of Americana (or Apple Pie), and this is a Disney site, you could always play this for them:
Tom (... for it's one, two, three strikes you're out at the old, ball, game!)
We have a "Stars & Stripes" week at our Summer Camp each year....
Two quick and easy items -
Jello parfaits: (red and blue gelatin, whipped cream, and fresh fruit) I premade the jello, and allowed the children to layer it in the cups themselves!
We also did flag fruit kabobs (a huge hit!) The photo below is not mine (I can't find mine at the moment) but they looked very similar. This food project was particularly good because while we made our "kabobs" we talked about how America is just like our kabob flag...each kabob is an individual thing that we create, but when we put it all together it makes a lovely flag. Just like in America, people are different and all individuals, but all of us together make up a great nation.
Easy, fun and healthy!
