The 4th of July is in just a few weeks and it’s time to get your parade bags ready! My children love letting their creative side show, so we decided to add fireworks to white gift bags from Oriental Trading, which turned out perfect!
These DIY 4th of July parade bags are so easy to make, all you need is a few bendable straws, paint and tape!
We started by taping 5 or 6 straws together, right above the bendy part. Fan out the bendable portion, and you’re set!
Gently dip a straw in paint then stamp it on the bag. Sometimes we had to press the individual straws down, but it was still easy! We had one straw for red and another for blue, but you could certainly use other colors (fireworks come in all colors!) Easy, right?
I also ordered USA candy bracelets, Pop Rocks and red, white & blue glow sticks from Oriental Trading. When our bags were dry, I put those items in each bag, so my children could have a treat to enjoy while waiting on the parade to arrive at our destination.
