I’ve had these cute Fireworks Goodie Bags for Kids on my list to make for a couple of weeks now, and I’m not sure why it took me so long to get them made, because they were so quick! That’s the best kind of project, but even better, they look great, and I’m so excited to give them to my boys for the 4th of July!

If you’d like to make some of these yourself, you’ll need:
- Kid appropriate fireworks. I used sparklers and pop-its.
- Americana Printed Glassine Bags
- Cottage Living Thickers
- Cottage Living Jumbo Paper Clips
- Star Punch
- White Glimmer Cardstock
I got out the Thickers and bags, and spelled some words on the front of them. Adding the exclamation points and asterisks really makes the words feel like “fireworks”.
I took the fireworks out of their packages, but left them in the plastic that they came in.
I slid them in the bags.
I folded the top of the bag down, and then got out the Glimmer paper and star punch, and punched out the amount of stars that I needed.
I placed the star at the top, and then put the paper clip on the fold, and over the star, to hold it in place.
I’m in love with that the gold accents add to these! Isn’t it fun?
I don’t think there is anything more perfect for these Fireworks Goodie Bags for Kids than adding the thickers with gold to the bags.
We’ll be spending the holiday with my brother and his family, so I’m going to put together a few more of these to give to my nephews (yes, my brother only has boys too. Nine boys between the two of us!)
I’m curious, what would you add to these little goodie bags? Any other fireworks? Maybe a snack? I’d love to hear your ideas.

Such a cute idea. If I were having a 4th of July party I think I’d make these for the guests and put some sugar cookies in them decorated with red white and blue sprinkles and put them on the plates on the table.

Sugar cookies would be a fun addition!
Love this idea! We are going to be traveling back home from our vacation on the 4th. This would be a fun little surprise on the car trip home.
Those nine boys are going to love these goodie bags! Thanks for sharing at the This Is How We Roll Link party on Organized 31.
These are cute Amy. Everything you do is so pretty. I love seeing your posts at The Creative Circle. Thanks for linking up again. 😉 xoxo (pinning and sharing on FB)
These are so much fun! My kiddos would be ecstatic to open these on the 4th! Thanks for the awesome tutorial. Pinning!

These are so adorable, and I love that they have a little personal supply of fireworks inside! Great to keep the kids from arguing about who gets the last sparkler. 🙂
