Happy Memorial Day!

As many parents know, today is an American federal holiday – and the perfect day to teach your kids the importance of being patriotic. While your kids are at home enjoying their day off from school, why not make this holiday unique and fun with a bunch of red, white and blue snacks? In addition to eating cool treats, you can teach them about the sacrifices many individuals made to make this country a better place for everyone to live. In honor of Memorial Day, Forkly has put together a list of fun, easy and creative red, white and blue snacks for kids (plus you can use these snack ideas to celebrate 4th of July as well).

If you want to know the best cupcake shop in any major city in America, just ask Angela. This girl knows her sweets, and she isn't shy about letting you know that your german chocolate cake needs more chocolate. If you want to find Angela on any given day, she's probably looking up reviews to decide where to grab lunch, or in her downtime, binge-watching the latest 'it-series' on Netflix.
