Homemade dilly bars + DIY cool summer treats {roundup}

Summer is in full swing around here and it seems like our littles constantly have a cool treat in their chubby fists to beat these triple digits!  To help keep them entertained this hot season, we made a batch of dilly bars…

and let them reap the tasty reward:

I would say we’re officially ready for summer!  As part of the fun Ready 4 Summer Blog Party, we thought it would be fun to share some other DIY cool treats for you to make with your littles to display when entertaining at your summer barbecues or pool parties :)


These watermelon pops by The Idea Room are just cute and look so tasty!  I would say this is the perfect looking summer treat:


These 4th of July handmade drumsticks by A Spicy Perspective look SO good!  The topping bar is just too cute and I love how she wrapped them in foil to keep them cool until party go-ers could enjoy them:


We’ve been making our own yogurt popsicles this year and I can’t wait to try this version by The Sweetest Occasion:


You can’t go wrong with the easy peasy baggie ice cream by What’s Cooking With Ruthie.  Mmmmm!

Baked by Bree did the cutest “summer is starting” sundae party for her littles.  Love the colors and I bet those kids loved the sweets:


And lastly, you can’t have summer without a good shaved ice… or in this case, an adorables sno one garland by Comfort Creatures blog.  Perfect for summer entertaining:
