4th of July Treat Bags for the Parade

4th of July Treat Bags for the Parade or Fireworks

Do your red, white, and blue cuties get bored waiting for the parade? The 4th of July will be here soon and I see the stores are filled with red, white, and blue fun stuff. The kids are bubbling over with excitement in anticipation of the parade, but it’s hard to sit and wait for it to start. Creating 4th of July Treat Bags for the parade to keep them busy until the parade started was a lifesaver. It also doubles as a place to put the candy from the parade.

4th of July Treat Bags to keep the Kids Busy

The treat bag is easy to put together. Put in things to keep them busy at the parade and items for later (either for the picnic or fireworks). A great place to pick up items is the Dollar Tree or the Target dollar spot, but Amazon has so much cute stuff too. I’m buying the I love USA bubbles this year and the stamp set. Everything for the treat bag is usually red, white, and blue- a patriotic theme for a patriotic day!

Who else likes to save money? These will keep your children busy and they won’t beg (I mean ask) for you to buy them things from the vendors walking around. It will save you so much money and headaches too! I try to buy everything for the parade bag (without my childre)n so it’s a surprise on the 4th of July.
