Patriotic Windsock Craft – A fun, patriotic decoration that isn’t too hard to make! All you need is a toilet paper roll, printer paper, and some yarn. The red, white, and blue hanging decoration is a fun way for your little ones to create decorations that you can use around the house for the 4th! For a simpler version, replace the colored yarn with paint and/or glitter!
Fingerprint Flag – A super easy project for your little ones to do. All you need is white paper and red and blue paint. Help your little ones create the stripes of the flag, as well as, the stars with their fingers! An adorable, hands-on craft your little ones are sure to love!
Patriotic Magnets – A fun way to celebrate the 4th is to decorate the fridge with magnets! Your little ones can make clay magnets with store bought clay or salt dough. Spell out USA, make a flag, or create some fireworks. Your little ones will love playing with the clay and then being able to see their creations on the fridge!
4th of July Wreaths – A fun project to put somewhere around the house. Get red, white, and blue paper for your wreath. For a fun family version, trace the hands of your children on the different colored paper, cut them out, and glue them on a paper plate to make your wreath. Or for a more festive look, have your little ones trace and cut out stars for your wreath. Also, add little touches of glitter and ribbon for more fun!
Sponge Painting – A great craft for your little ones! Take a few sponges and cut them into star and firework shapes. Set out small plates with different colors of paint on them like red, blue, white, gold, and silver. Either on canvas or paper, give your little ones the sponge shapes and let them create some patriotic masterpieces!
