Here is a quick and easy patriotic snack idea that you can bring to any party. Our red, white and blue patriotic pops come together in minutes and are so simple even a child can make them. If you are looking for more ways to enjoy Memorial Day or the 4th of July check out our Patriotic Cupcakes.
You will need:
- Star shaped marshmallows – I found these at my local grocery store
- Sliced fruit (you can use strawberries, bananas and blueberries)
- Kabob sticks
We found these cool Kraft Jet Puffed star shaped marshmallows in red white and blue which are perfect for any patriotic holiday. I only had strawberries and bananas on hand for the red and white fruit, but blueberries would be a great addition.
I gave my kids a plate with some cut up fruit and marshmallows and let them create their own kabob.
I did cut off the tip of the stick before we started so it would not be sharp. Please keep in mind it is still a stick and children need to be carefully supervised when making this fun snack.
The kids loved these! I mean what’s not to love? It’s marshmallows and fruit on a stick. Does it get any easier than that?
If you are hosting a party or BBQ, your kids can help you make this fun patriotic snack for your guests. They are quick and simple to prepare.
You can even add some patriotic sprinkles (which mainly stuck to the banana) to make the whole thing extra festive!

If you love struggle with picky eaters like I do, you know you will try anything to entice them to eat. Something that we have had success with are Funbites. This food cutter which has been seen on Shark Tank cuts food into bite sized fun shapes which makes food look so inviting and fun!
