4th of July Parade Bags

We’re a parade lovin’ family. But as much as we love them there is also a lot of waiting. The kids always seem to get hungry and want to eat everything that passes by. We will have a total of nine kids at the parade this year and I don’t want to be handing out food the whole time. I decided making Parade Bags for each kid would be the best solution.

The bags include everything they will need to keep their tummies happy during the parade, plus a flag to wave and glow bracelets for later in the day. Since they have individual bags they can eat when they want and when it’s gone, it’s gone. They can even put more treats in their bags that are thrown from the parade.

Of course I had to decorate the bags but I kept it really simple using plain white lunch bags, carnival tickets, mini clothespins, washi tape, and printable tags. The tickets were purchased from the dollar store.

Fold the white lunch bags down twice.

Then fill with all the goodies.

Use the washi tape to secure the bag closed then attach the tickets and tag with a mini clothespin.

These are a surprise for the kids and I think they’re going to be pretty excited. I can’t wait to see all of them holding their flags. I think there are going to be a lot of photo ops.

I like to make sure the kids have a few more things with them to make parade watching more enjoyable.

Sunglasses
Hat
Games
Water bottles
Fan
Blanket
Sunscreen

If it’s allowed in your area stake out your territory the night before. We leave blankets and chairs to hold our place in a shady spot for the parade.
