Eating watermelons can become a sticky situation, and these popsicles are just bite-sized enough to keep your child and his play-dates hydrated in the sun. Grab a pack of small popsicle sticks from your local grocery store and insert them into bite sized watermelon triangles. Be sure to keep them in a bucket of ice or a cooler away from the bbq grill, to keep them nice and cold. If you want to spice it up, you can add some crushed cocoanut garnish to the top it off and give the popsicles some crunch. No need for sweet, sugary drinks when you have watermelon!
PB & J Sushi Rolls
Peanut butter and jelly is more then just a classic recipe, its the epitome of every kid’s childhood, so why not add a little 21st century twist. These sushi rolls are made from flour tortillas smothered in different types of jellies. You can top them off with berries or sliced up fruit. There’s always the option of using nutella spread if your little one is a chocolate lover. A perfect recipe to add some berries to a kidtastic bbq!
