Gather your favorite vegetables, whether carrots, celery, broccoli, red peppers, or anything else, and cut them so they are slim enough to have multiple in a cup. Once cut, add your choice of dressing to the bottom of the cup and fill it with the desired number of vegetables, and you’re set!
  3. Charcuterie Kabobs – Just like fruit skewers these take the mess away and puts your snack on a stick! This allows anyone to eat with one hand, making it easy for clean up too. Using your choice of meat and cheese add them to your kabob and then you’re done! These are fully customizable allowing you full control in how you want them to look and taste, so have fun with it!
  4. Ice Cream Sandwich with a Twist – This is a simple and quick way to take your ice cream sandwiches to the next level. You can prep these before giving them out, or you can make them interactive and let anyone do it themselves. The only things you’ll need are ice cream sandwiches and sprinkles. Choose whatever flavor and color you want! Once you remove the packaging from the sandwich, roll the sandwich in the sprinkles, and you’re done! This is a great way to stay festive during summer holidays and birthdays!
