fireworks, and other activities. It is also a tribute to the beginnings of our
country. Fourth of July crafts are an entertaining way for kids to commemorate
the anniversary of our independence. Here are some ideas.|
Windsocks are a fun and attractive outdoor decoration. They are also easy to
make. All you need is an oatmeal box, some white and blue construction paper,
red and white streamers, scissors, and glue. Cut the end out of the oatmeal box
and cover it with blue construction paper, and cut out stars from the white
construction paper to glue on. Then cut some red and white streamers to the same
length, and glue them to one end. Tie some string to the other end for hanging.
Fireworks are a favorite on the Fourth of July. You can make a unique fireworks
picture with some crayons and white paper. First, use lots of different colors
to make a pattern all over the paper. Color darkly. Then get a black crayon, and
color over the whole piece of paper darkly. Use a paper clip to scratch off a
fireworks design, and you will have a colorful picture of fireworks in the night
Fourth of July parades are great, but think of the fun the kids could have by
having their own parade! They can decorate their bikes with red, white, and blue
crepe paper and tape. Then they will need some patriotic costumes. If they have
some holiday-appropriate clothes thatís great, but if not they can easily paint
some stars and stripes on an old t-shirt with fabric paint. Make your own flags
and signs with paper and markers. Gather up some toy or makeshift musical
instruments, stick horses, and a few flags, and you can have an awesome parade
right in your own backyard.
The Fourth of July is a great time for summer crafts. These are only a few of
the many items that kids could make for the occasion. Once you get them started,
they will likely think of many more creative ideas on their own. Make sure you
have the basics such as construction paper, scissors, glue, art supplies, and
some craft sticks on hand, and youíll be surprised what they will come up with.
