As a child, my favorite memory from our annual July 4th Party was getting to stay up late and watch the fireworks. My Dad would set off a display while the kids ran around lighting sparklers and throwing pops at the ground. I have continued the tradition with my own children, and they look forward to every Fourth of July. This year at our party, instead of passing out the traditional boxes of Pops (or snaps), I have incorporated them into my party favor. I can’t wait to handout one of these cute favors to all of the kids.
This is a very simple craft, but it definitely adds some patriotic flare to your July 4th party decor. Start by gathering your supplies. You will need some clear treat bags with twist ties, red striped bakers twine, and one box of Pop-Its for each party favor. Oh and don’t forget to print my free “Pops” tags available at the end of this post.
Each box of Pop-Its comes with two small bags inside. I used both bags inside each individual party favor. I also included the saw dust because I figured it was there for a reason, so I shouldn’t discard it. Better safe than sorry!
Once you have placed all the pops inside the treat bag and closed the top with a twist tie, then you are ready to add the tag. I used a 1/8 inch hole punch to create a hole in the corner of the tag and then inserted a short piece of red and white striped baker’s twine. (As a side note: I don’t normally like to invest in color specific craft items because I feel like I use them once and then they just sit inside my desk never to be used again. But, I purchased a large roll of red and white striped baker’s twine a few years ago and have found so many great uses for it. So many holidays have red as a color, so it has been very useful. Think Christmas, Valentines, School, and July 4th crafts! You should get your money’s worth from red and white stripes.) Loosely tie the tag onto the favor bag. It’s no fun when mom gets stuck opening all the party favors, so I kept it kid friendly and tied with a bow.

I made several of these cute July 4th party favors for the kids coming to my house this year. I plan to have them on display near the front door, so they can be easily grabbed as we head out to light fireworks.
