But you can do it any day! Change up the fruit and see what you can come up with! There is still a lot of summer left and this is perfect for any hot day :D
Read this instructable too late to make them for the 4th :( Still gonna do it, looks delicious!
Yeah, I came up with this idea very last minute :( but it's nice that you can do this whenever you want with whatever fruit you want! Great for summer all around!
