I like to celebrate the Fourth of July with a few mellow poppers, smoke bombs, and sparklers. It gives my kids the chance to get in on the action of the fireworks without any of the danger. I made these Dip Dyed bags to hold the goodies we’ll be giving to my sons and their friends. It’s a really easy way to make the day feel festive. Happy 4th!
