4th of July Goodie Bags

Every year I give my grands some little thing to help celebrate the 4th of July. This is the first year in a long time that we are not all going to be together to watch the fire works show. So, the goodie bags have gone out a little early this year.

The goodies this year were homemade 
Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats.

I added red, white, and blue marshmallow
stars for the occasion. I melted down a couple of
marshmallows with a small dab of butter in the
microwave. I used the sticky goo to glue
the colorful stars in place.

Here are all of my supplies.

I added a sticker to my clearance priced blue
bags to make them festive!

Each bag contained a 4th of July writing pad and pencil.
A tattoo for the patriotic holiday, 
the homemade goodie,
stickers and Red Vines.
Each bag had a personalized tag tucked inside.
I topped the bags off with some sparkly red fluff!

The moms and dads got a treat to share.

Their message read to have a safe and happy
4th of July!

While I will be spending the weekend
 with three generations of my family I will certainly
be missing and thinking of my
three grown kids and my ten little pearls
who will watching the fireworks show
under the same big sky but miles and miles away this
Fourth of July!

I wish you all a safe and 
Happy 4th of July!

  1. Sometimes we grandparents have to make hard decisions about being with our grands or being with other family members. Your goodie bags certainly ensure that your grandchildren will be thinking of you. They are beautiful!
