One of my new goals this year is to do “things”. For whatever reason, I have a bad habit of making beautiful Pinterest boards, loads of lists and tons of projects in my mind but then I don’t do them.
So this year, I am doing. Even if it isn’t perfect. It might not be Pinterest “worthy,” heck, it might even be a complete fail. But I am making it happen. You know what? My kids are loving it and so am I. It feels good to start and finish something. Even if it is a just a graham cracker that looks like a flag.

American Flag Graham Cracker Treat
You only need a couple of ingredients to make this easy American flag graham cracker snack. I used organic graham crackers, cream cheese, strawberries, blueberries and strawberry jelly.
Ya’ll, this is so easy. Just take a graham cracker and spread slightly softened cream cheese across the entire cracker.
Next, place your blueberries in the top left corner. Spread a couple of lines of strawberry jelly across the flag to create some stripes. See how mine are not perfect? Not Pinterest worthy. Not award winning. Just do it.
My kids didn’t care that it wasn’t meticulously drawn out. It was fun and holiday themed. It was a tasty treat that was out of the norm and that is what they like.
Add the sliced strawberries onto the strawberry jelly to complete the American flag graham cracker treat.
You can really adapt this idea to whatever you have on hand!
Use toast instead of a graham cracker.
Vanilla icing in place of the cream cheese.
Dried cranberries instead of strawberries. Or Red M&M’s if you are a fun mom! The icing and M&M combo sounds like something I may need to eat! Sorry Kids.
I hope you love this Red, White & Blue American flag graham cracker snack. What is your favorite American themed food to eat or make on this holiday?
