Looking for some Patriotic snacks to celebrate summer with? These red white and blue snacks are sure to be a hit with any crowd, young or old. The perfect option for your summer party, choose a 4th of July snack that is easy, fun, and tasty!
If you didn’t know by now, I love playing with my food – and by my food, I definitely mean my kids’ food. Whether it’s fun breakfast toasts, spooky soup, or festive smoothies, I think feeding your kids should be fun! Spending a few extra minutes to make a simple snack exciting is what adds a bit of that ‘magic’ to childhood. When your kids are all grown up and thinking about their childhood, little details like snowman pancakes or Halloween soups will be things that put a smile on their faces.
While spending the time making smiley faces and turning strawberries into hearts might not be something you have time for on the day-to-day, the occasional fun snack time treat is something you should definitely fit into your schedule! Today I’m sharing 2 of my own simple patriotic snacks to serve your kiddos when the time for red, white, and blue snacks rolls around that are both delicious and easy as well as a bunch of patriotic snacks from some of my favorite bloggers with will help make your Memorial Day or 4th of July snack time fun.

Fun Patriotic Snacks Sure to Wow
Graham Cracker Flag
Take 2 whole graham cracker sheets and spread softened cream cheese on one and nut butter (I used peanut) on another. On the cream cheese, add 4 blueberries to the top left corner before creating red ‘stripes’ with halved raspberries. On the peanut butter cracker, add blueberries the same way before laying down sliced strawberries down. Finish by making white stripes with whipped cream. Enjoy!
Red, White, and Blue Snack Cup
In a separate bowl, combine red and blue berries. I used cut strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. If desired, add a tablespoon or so sugar to the bowl and stir before setting aside to allow the berries to get juicy. When ready to serve, crumble one graham cracker sheet into a clear cup (I used disposable cocktail cups like these) and layer berries and whipped cream or Greek yogurt. (Vanilla ice cream would also be amazing!)
The easiest way to add some red white and blue to your patriotic snacks is to add some colorful fruit! Need some inspiration? Here are my favorites.

Watermelon & Blueberry Sparklers. I love how absolutely simple these are – they require no more than fresh fruit, a cookie cutter, and a stick! Any kid is sure to love them. They would be fun to make with your kids to enjoy as a 4th of July snack. I can see it now – a sparkler in one hand, and a fruit sparkler in the other!
Cookie Cutter Fruit Salad. Beyond simple, this fruit salad uses the best fruits (Uh, watermelon.) to make a simple yet impressive patriotic snack for any party. Add apples or bananas to bring some white into it! I know my boys would have a blast cutting the watermelon out for this as well.
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. Who can resist fresh fruit and cheesecake? I love that these patriotic snacks are just a bit healthier than you might find elsewhere!

Red, White and Blue Salsa A lover of all things, I don’t think I could resist this salsa! How good would it be with cannoli chips?
Sparkling Red White and Blue Sangria What’s a party without a good drink? This fruity sangria looks so amazing and could easily be made kid friendly by subbing the wine with lemon lime soda.
