How are you celebrating the Fourth of July this year? Whether you’re attending a big neighborhood BBQ or a small family picnic, this flag-inspired candy station is sure to be a hit. The key to making this setup is simple: empty egg cartons!
After a quick wash with soapy water, Nellie’s Free Range Egg cartons make perfect trays for this patriotic treat station. You can choose candies of all shapes, sizes, and flavors, or you can use chopped strawberries, blueberries, and apples to create your colorful design right in the carton. And did you know that every carton is made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and has half the carbon footprint of a molded fiber carton? It’s true! And when all the candies have been gobbled up, you can recycle the empty egg cartons again.
If you’re a guest at a friend or family member’s BBQ, we recommend bringing your red, white, and blue candies in jars and setting up the flag once you arrive. And speaking of jars, when buying candies for this treat, bring some empty jars to your local bulk store. Many bulk stores allow containers to be weighed before filling so that you can avoid single-use plastic bags. Keep reading for even more tips and tricks.
