Fireworks & Parade Fun Bags

It is the time of year for parades and fireworks, so I decided to make some “Fireworks & Parade Fun Bags!  I first saw this idea at eighteen 25 and thought what a fun idea.   I love watching parades and fireworks, but it seems like the wait time is long for the little ones.  I thought it would be fun to make some little bags with some goodies in them just in time for the 4th of July!  These are perfect for filling with your favorite treats and little toys!fireworks and parade bagsI put licorice, candies, poppers, bubbles, and snaps in this bag, but you can fill with whatever treats your family likes!

Do you need to make some of these fun Fireworks & Parade Fun Bags for your kiddos?

In my hometown, we do a miniature float parade every year for the town celebration.  They have been doing this for many years and I have loved this parade ever since I moved to this town!  When I was much younger my neighbor and I were assigned to make several floats and it was truly a labor of love!  We would work tirelessly for several weeks to get our floats ready.  We had costumes made and it was a fun time for all!  This year my daughter was assigned to make the float for her neighborhood…so the tradition continues on!

The kids love the parade as much as I do!Lehi Parade 2016The one in the red shirt was not as excited about getting candy as he was in tricking his younger brother into thinking that he found the candy!

This is the float my daughter was in charge of making.  It turned out pretty cute and she was excited when she found out this float won 3rd place!  I love the fringe on this float, it was all hand-made from the beads to stringing each strand!  I told you these floats are truly a labor of love!miniature paradeI thought I would share some of these darling miniature floats so you could enjoy this parade too!Lehi Parade 2016-001There are floats, bands, cheerleaders and dignitaries!Lehi Parade 2016-004The theme of the parade was “Picture This”, so there were a great variety of floats and creativity!Lehi Parade 2016-002Every float has banners in front of it with the name of the float.  I liked the banners with this beehive float!Lehi Parade 2016-003This was a fun Santa’s Summer Break float!

  1. How fun! I lived in Tooele and they had quit doing fun parades when I was there. Lehi is getting so big now, it’s good they still do this!

    1. Debbie, I am glad that they still do the small parade. Sometimes it seems like too much work, but I am so glad that they are still doing it. Hope you have a Happy 4th and that you get to spend part of the day watching a parade! :)

    1. Bev, Yes, USA! USA! I hope that you too have a wonderful and safe 4th and that you get to spend it doing what you love with those you love!

    1. Meloney, I got mine at a local party store, but most any party store will carry the large clear bags, such as Partyland, or Zurchers etc.
