- Tin pail/container - $1 at Target
- Firework straws - $2 at Target
- Flag Tootsie Rolls, red and blue starred Tootsie Pops, and Baseball gumballs - Wegmans bulk aisle
I filled the pail about 3/4 full with shredded paper (yup, all those credit card applications that went through the shredded!). I filled the rest of the pail with the Tootsie Rolls and Baseball gumballs. Next I stuck 5 of the firework straws in the bucket (cutting the front 2 shorter). The last step was to add the Tootsie Pops.
I took this to work and they were totally amazed (right brain accountants!!). The guys LOVED the Baseball gumballs and had a great walk down memory lane. Do you remember them as kid? My siblings and I use to love them. The Flag Tootsie Rolls were a big hit too. None of use have every seen them.
Happy Fourth of July to you all. Be safe and enjoy the long weekend, baseball and apple pie!
