Wave these SPARKLERS on INDEPENDENCE DAY, and watch the kids' faces light up!  I made these simple little candy sparklers using PAPER STRAWS, POP ROCKS, PIXIE STIX,CUPCAKE TOPPERS, GLUE DOTS and a FUNNEL.  

Pop Rock sparklers were a HUGE HIT with my kids because they pop and sizzle just like a real sparkler would!  Magical every time!

{LOVELY LIBERTY} FOURTH OF JULY PARTY

I am happy to welcome Natalie Stern from Katarina's Paperie/Confetti Diaries as a guest blogger!  She is sharing adorable ideas for a patriotic party and FREE printables!  Find the link for the free printables at the end of the post!  Thanks, Natalie!!

We are so excited to be back at The Party Wagon sharing our free printable patriotic party collection available in our shop, Katarina's Paperie, now. Fourth of July is one of our favorite holidays. There's something about styling a celebration using red, white and blue that makes me feel so happy. I love sharing this joy of summer with all of our friends and family. For this year's patriotic collection, we combined classic stripes and polka dots to create a colorful and fun design that would be perfect for any barbecue, picnic or other patriotic themed party.

QUICK CRACKER CANDY FOR A CROWD- Recipe

When I was little, one of my sister's friends made this candy for us, and it has been a part of the family recipe book ever since!  I don't know the origin of the recipe... we call it "Karen's Candy" - named after our friend that brought it to us.  It is so, so easy and so, so yummy!  My children and I just made it, and we added red white and blue sprinkles to make it festive for the Fourth of July.  With or without sprinkles, it is always a hit!  I always leave some without sprinkles for the adults~
