Red White & Blue Coffee Filter Flowers

Decorate your summer table with these fun and patriotic flowers that kids can create and decorate!

Coffee Filter Flowers


  • White coffee filters
  • Red and blue food coloring
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Water
  • 2 plastic cups
  • Newspaper
  • Vase or container to place finished “bouquet” in


Put red food coloring into plastic cup, and add a small amount of water. Test the color intensity by dipping coffee filter into cup. To enhance color, add more food coloring to cup (in this example, I used 1 bottle of food coloring diluted in about 4 tablespoons of water). Repeat with blue food coloring in second cup.

Fold coffee filters into triangular shapes and dip into cups of food coloring. To save time, fold many filters together and dip. Lay flat on newspaper to let them dry.

To create different looks for your flowers, try the following techniques:

  • Use a small paintbrush to dip into the food coloring and dab onto the filter to create spots or polka dots.

  • Take the triangular coffee filter and fold in half (see picture below). Dip the center into one color (which will create a “stripe”, and then unfold to triangular shape and dip one end in the other color.

After filters are dried, create the flower by stacking 3 coffee filters, pulling them together in the center, and twisting the center.








Wrap pipe cleaner tightly around the twisted area to create a stem.

Add shape and fullness to the flower by carefully separating each filter.

Arrange flowers in vase or container and place on your table to admire!



Fourth of July Fizzy

This fun and fizzy refreshment will be a hit with the kids (and it looks great, too)!

The layered effect of the drinks is due to the differences in each beverage’s sugar content; the higher the sugar content of a drink, the more dense it is. So for our fizzy, the drink with the highest sugar content goes first (with the ingredients used here, the cranberry juice had the highest sugar content), followed by the drink with a lower sugar content (in this case, the Gatorade), and finished with the least amount of sugar (the diet soda). Be sure to use diet soda, since it has no sugar and will “float” well on top of the other drinks.



-Blue Gatorade

-Cranberry Juice

-Diet Lemon Lime Soda



  1. Fill clear glasses (or plastic cups) with ice cubes.
  2. Pour cranberry juice into cup, filling about 1/3 of the cup.
  3. Pour Gatorade next; be sure to pour VERY slowly and pour onto an ice cube so that the drinks don’t mix together.
  4. Fill the remainder of the cup with diet lemon lime soda, again being careful to pour slowly and onto an ice cube.
  5. Garnish with a fun straw and enjoy!


Patriotic Pretzel Sticks

Celebrate the U.S.A. with these delicious, festive, kid friendly pretzel snacks!

Makes: 10-12 pretzel rods

  • Pretzel Rods
  • Red, White and Blue Sprinkles

1. Melt Almond Bark squares in a microwave-safe bowl or cup (microwaving times vary; 45-60 seconds will usually be sufficient). While Almond Bark is microwaving, place a sheet of wax paper on a baking sheet.

2. Dip pretzel rod into melted Almond Bark, truning the bowl/cup as needed to evenly coat the top half of the pretzel.

3. Hold the pretzel over wax paper and pour sprinkles, turning the pretzel so that the sprinkles cover the Almond Bark coated portion.
