AND a fun way to start off any 4th of July celebration!  It’s also a fun kitchen craft to let the kids help with… just cookie cutters and toothpicks!!  AND that’s just about as safe as it gets :)

    I’ve seen cheese with apples, but never with watermelon. Looks like another fruit and cheese combo to try! And kid-friendly too. :)
