Patriotic Fruit Skewers

Yum

 My son saw these very cute Patriotic Fruit Skewers in a Target circular and asked me to make them.  I was more than thrilled to do so because they looked so fun, pretty healthy and a breeze to put together.  They will also make a very festive treat for any 4th of July party.  My kids loved helping me assemble them and they loved eating them even more.   Hope you all enjoy this great idea my son and I saw (thanks to the folks at Target) and make it a part of your 4th of July celebrations as well.
 

Ingredients:
Watermelon
Blueberries
Strawberries
Large Marshmallows

wood skewers
small star cookie cutter

I will not give you quantities because you can make as many or as few as you like. 

Directions:
 Slice 1/2 inch thick slices of watermelon and take a star shaped cookie cutter to cut out stars.

Then skewer in order with the blue (blueberries), white(marshmallow), red (strawberry). Use the watermelon stars to separate the red, white and blue pattern and finish off the top of the skewer.  Chill or serve immediately.  Enjoy.

Note: You can cut the strawberries in half if you like.
