4th of July Fun

Every 4th of July I treat my grandchildren to some kind of small gift, goodie, or activity to help celebrate our time together at the fireworks show. This year I put together small gift boxes for each child.

The small patriotic decorated boxes include a few Tootsie "Pops", kid safe TNT "Pop-its", always fun Party "Poppers", a glowing light stick, a small bottle of bubbles that will provide lots of "Popping" action, and a glittering red, white, and blue necklace which also serves as a eye "Popping" burst of color and shine to top of the gift boxes!

To add to the fun I will arrive with their gift boxes in a large basket lined with patriotic linens and some festive red, white, and blue tinsel party picks. I will also have the supplies for face painting. Face paint, glitter, patriotic stickers, and sparkling stars will provide some holiday fun while they are waiting for the fireworks to begin.

Very simple and inexpensive gifts such as this will help to make the time you spend with your grandchildren just a bit more fun, festive and memorable! 

Make sure to watch the 4th of July clearance sales and you too will find inspiration for just pennies on the dollar that can be stored away for the year and used to create your own memories when you make the 4th of July holiday "Pop" for your grandchildren too!

Have a happy and safe 4th of July !


  1. We celebrate Canada Day on July 1st and last week I sent each of my grandchildren a little combined 'welcome to summer, Happy Canada Day' parcel. I sent each a red & white maple leaf t-shirt, a new bathing suit, a glow stick, maple leaf tattoos and candy. Even though I can't share the day with them this year, I am at least part of it in a small way.

    I love the way you decorated the big basket of individual gift bags!

  2. I am sure they loved receiving your parcel. You will certainly be a part of their celebration. They will also think of you every other time they wear their maple leaf t-shirts and the new swimsuits.

  3. How fun! I love the "pop" theme! Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!

  4. Looks like fun. Have a great July 4th celebration.
