Memorial Day Treat Ideas


There’s nothing like getting ready for summer fun with a good ol fashioned Memorial Day weekend. The kids get to play in the sprinklers and pool before or after some backyard games. While the parents get to sit back and watch with a glass of wine or a beer. The smell of barbeque swirling in the air as it creeps past your nose, making heads turn over to the grill master. And after filling your bellies with some mouth-watering summertime barbecue, you will want to indulge in some sweet, festive, Memorial Day desserts!

These treats are a great way to celebrate Memorial day and have some great summer fun. When you’re done, it’s back to the sprinkler or inflatable pools for everyone. I chose Memorial Day treats that you can make alone or with your kids. My friend Jen and her son Nicky, 6, are staying here for a few months. He’s autistic and I wanted to find some things to do with him that he would like. We have practiced a few, and so far these have been a hit!
