A Fruit Cooler for Flag Day


June 14 is Flag Day, which recognizes the official adoption of the United States’ flag in 1777 by the Second Continental Congress. While Flag Day is not a federal holiday, communities do observe it in different ways, from holding parades to historical exhibits to displaying flags in public areas.

On June 14, organize your own Flag Day parade with your friends on your block. Maybe wear red, white and blue and make banners that proclaim “Happy Flag Day.” Sing songs like “You’re a Grand Old Flag” or “The Star Spangled Banner.” Learn about Betsy Ross, the woman who sewed the first American flag.

Making flags with different materials, especially ones you can eat, is also really fun. Cherry tomatoes and cauliflower can become red and white stripes. Blueberries and starfruit can create patriotic stars. Or, make a drink that quenches while it resembles the flag.
