4th of July Treats!

4th of july ideasAdd extra sparkle to your 4th of July by giving out some goodies to enjoy while watching the fireworks!



Every year we get together with family friends to celebrate the 4th of July. It’s such a great,
all-American day, with picnics, barbecues, rodeos, and of course, fireworks!  To make the evening even more special and keep the younger crowd busy while waiting for the fireworks to start, we like to send everyone off with a bag of goodies. Here are some ideas for making and filling your own bags 4th of July treats:

Start with plain craft paper bags and decorate them with patriotic ribbons, stickers, markers or free 4th of July printables. (We found these at My Sister’s Suitcase.)

Add any combination of the following 4th of July party treats:

  • Cracker Jacks
  • Peanuts
  • Water or pop (Click here for some cute printable water bottle labels like the ones in the picture made by Tea Party Designs)
  • Candy (we chose big lollipops so they would last a while)
  • Bubble gum (you can often find red, white, and blue gumballs which look pretty if you put them into small cellophane bags tied with ribbon)
