Frugal, Family Fun this weekend

Frugal, Family Fun this weekend

I can't believe we are already past the 4th of July festivities and school will be here before we know it. How are you all doing with your summer "to do list"?  We have so much more we still want to do, I wish I could slow down time and keep having fun all summer. 
I wanted to share some fun easy activities and recipes we did while we had company over the 4th of July weekend.

Here are a couple of fun, festive food and drink ideas to use at your next Patriotic party.

The kids thought these patriotic drinks were really fun. I froze red and blue Powerade into ice cube trays and then we added the colorful and flavorful ice cubes to either Sprite or Ginger Ale.

Sweet and Salty Sparklers or as my friend called them "Unhealthy Ants on a Log."  Mine did not turn out quite as pretty as the magazine picture but they were so yummy and as you can see by the hands in the picture they were disappeared quickly.
Flag Fruit Kabobs; my version turned out pretty good compared to the magazine picture. So easy just use; blueberries, mini marshmallows and raspberries on bamboo skewers.
And of course, you have to have a flag cake on the 4th of July!!!

We thought it would be fun to do a science experiment for an "explosion" during the 4th of July festivities so we did  Mentos in Diet Soda and it was a Blast!! The first picture we added 4 Mentos and the second picture we added 8 Mentos. 

Last but not least, here are a few pictures from our Fireworks fun in our driveway.
