4th of July Crafts for the Kids
Nothing says the 4th of July like backyard barbecues, sparklers and of course fireworks. This holiday is about celebrating America’s independence, but it’s also a time of nostalgia and making memories with the family. Here are just a few fun activities that will get the whole family in the spirit of red, white, and blue.
Confetti poppers are a fun and inexpensive way to decorate your picnic table or keep the kids busy for hours. You can easily get the poppers at any arts and crafts or online stores such as Hobby Lobby, Paper Source or Amazon. The kids can wrap the poppers in decorative paper with adhesive on one side, or make their own creation with markers or stickers.
