Firecrackin Picnic Poppers

Jun 18 2012 Liz Call

For the last couple of years, we’ve gone up north camping over the 4th of July.  We LOVE the 4th of July celebration in a little town not far from the valley.  They have a cute little parade (they actually shut down the highway) and the BEST fireworks shown I’ve ever seen!!!  It is such a break from the heat, and if you’ve ever watch a fireworks show in the valley, it’s almost not worth it because of the heat.

Their fireworks show is done at the highschool in this canyon.  The boom of the fireworks off the canyon walls almost takes your breath away.  We’ve learned that because of the popularity, you need to get to the ball fields early to get your seat.  We end up spending most of the afternoon and evening there, eating dinner, playing games and visiting.  Although they have venders, a DJ and slides for the kids, we usually bring our own dinner and treats.

This year I wanted to make something fun for the kids to have especially for waiting for the fireworks to start.  I decided to make these firecracker poppers full of fun treats and toys for each of the kids in our group.  I think they are going to love these and hopefully keep them busy for a few hours.

This last weekend my family went to our cabin to celebrate father’s day with my dad.  I knew I would have some helping hands (my mom, sister & sister in law) to make all 6 that I was going to need.

Here is what you are going to need to make these:

canister with pop top
(ex: bread crumbs, oatmeal, pringles, nuts, anything cardboard)
scrapbook paper
(punches, washi tape, glitter glue, anything to decorate outside)
pipe cleaners
star garland
ribbon
scissors
glue (or tape)
mod podge (optional)
GOODIES for the inside!
drink, fruit snacks, glow sticks, stickers, action figures, necklaces, candy, etc.

I wanted to add some crayons and something to color (to keep them busy a little longer), but I couldn’t find any 4th of July related coloring sheets at the store so I just decided to make my own.  You can download these and use them for your own kids to color this 4th of July.

They will print 2 to a page.  Just click on the links under pictures

4th coloring page 2

Here is how you make them:

Using an exacto knife, we cut out the bottom of our canister and poured out all the bread crumbs.  I even used a damp cloth to wipe out the inside a little and then let it dry.
 Trace the bottom of the canister onto a piece of scrapbook paper.
Cut out AROUND the circle leaving about 1/4 inch outside.  Then cut slits from the outside edge to your pen mark.  (this will make it easier to fold up and over the canister.
 Then fill your canister with your goodies (amazing what you can fit in there!) and then glue the new bottom on using glue or glue gun.

Now for the decorating!

Using scrapbook paper, washi tape, glitter glue and mod podge, we decided on our designs, glued on our paper and decorated our canisters.
 Even my dad got involved!
 Once the outside was decorated, we covered them with mod podge to make them look finished.  Then I punched out some tags with the kids initials so we knew which one would be for which kid.  I punched a hole in the tab of the pop top and attached my tags with ribbon.
 Then I traced the lid onto scrapbook paper and cut out the circle to cover the top and then put the lid back on.
 Here they all are!  Ready for the finishing touches!
 I made a tag for almost every letter of the alphabet.  Feel free to use these for your own tags.

Lastly, we decorated the top to look like an exploding firework!
Using pipe cleaners, star garland, tulle, hot glue and a LOT of patience, we decorated the tops

They turned out really cute and I think us adults had just as much fun making them as the kids will have opening them and enjoying them on the 4th of July!

If you have little ones that need a little entertaining, this is a great project.  And most everything I needed to make it I purchased from the dollar store!  Even the bread crumb canister (I’m too cheap to buy anything too pricey just to empty out for a craft).

Happy 4th everyone!
