It’s that time of the year. Summer is here. Kids are out of school. Weekends are filling up quick, especially with fireworks in the air and the fourth of July approaching.
We love enjoying all the cute holiday-themed snacks and desserts at all those summer parties. And of course the little ones can’t get enough of those sugary desserts we only let them indulge in once in awhile. But if you’re a busy mom hosting a party too, you’ll appreciate any quick and easy holiday snack ideas for the kiddos. You know, the ones that are still festive but only take a fraction of the time to put together!

With the fourth of July and Labor day soon following, I knew a red, white and blue snack for the kids was in order. So because our St. Patty’s Jello treats were super easy and devoured by the kids, we figured it was only right to do another one, but this time with a patriotic spin.
Super Easy Red, White & Blue Snack Idea for Kids
First you’ll need to make the jello according to package instructions. This typically means boiling water, adding the jello mix and adding two more cups of cold water. Then refrigerate 4-6 hours.
We found these cute little party tumblers at the store, which were perfect for little kids.
I recommend you just refrigerate overnight so you can set and forget and not try to cram in everything in one day (although of course it’s possible).
Once it’s ready, simply top with whipped cream. You can get as fancy or as simple as you want. (Note: It’s best to top when guest are actually ready to enjoy, because the whipped cream won’t stay nice and fluffy-looking for long.)
Now here’s the big secret: sprinkles!!! Simply add red, white and blue sprinkles to complete your beautiful patriotic snack. Kids always seem to go gaga over anything topped with sprinkles! It’s as simple as that. (Next time I’ll be sure to use THESE star-shaped sprinkles – so perfect!)
Your super simple jello snack works perfectly for Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4th or Labor Day. Take your choice and enjoy the party!
