To celebrate country’s birthday what can be better than encouraging kids to make patriotic crafts. These crafts are simple and kids will have gala time doing this creative project. So, pick your craft supply galore and let your creative juices flow!
Here are 3 easiest ever crafts to make for 4th of July
Popsicle Stick Flag and Banner
- Popsicle Stick Flags
- Supplies Needed:
- Popsicle Sticks
- White Stars (Can be cut from construction paper)
Firstly you need to cut two 3 ½ inch sticks and three 3 inch sticks and five uncut Popsicle sticks. Paint your Popsicle sticks in Red and White. You may skip painting the 3 ½ sticks as they will be in back for supporting and not visible. Paint three 3-inch sticks in blue and glue them on top of painted sticks. Decorate blue sticks with white stars and let them dry for some time. Now your flag is ready. To turn this flag into an amazing Independence Day banner, you can make bunch of such Popsicle Flags and glue them to a long piece of red ribbon. Then to give it finishing, you can tie a 5 inch piece of ribbon between each flag and hang it over mantle or entrance door.
Fun & Patriotic Glasses
- Foam rimmed glasses (kid sized)
- Glitter glue & foam sheets
- Red, White, Silver and Blue Glitter Ribbon
- Red, White, Blue, Silver foam pieces in different sizes (Happy 4th July written on them)
Hand over a pair of rimmed glasses to your kid and tell him to decorate it using foam pieces and glitters. I bought many star shaped foam pieces and my kids glued one piece of star on rim of the glasses. They can also make stars on circular foam pieces using glitter pen. To give it finishing ask them to glue some glitter ribbon. This craft is all about let kids decorate the way they want without following any instructions. Let them explore their creativity. The result will be similar to shown in the picture. Kids can sport these fun glasses at the fireworks.
- Wooden Spatula
- Jingle Bells in (Red, Golden, Blue & Silver)
- Red, White and Blue craft paint and some strips of worn out fabric
Start by asking kids to paint their wooden spatulas, paint one side and let it dry and then paint the other side. With the scissors cut fabric into thin 12-24 inches long strips and let the kids twine two bells on each strip. Then, thread fabric with bells through the holes in the spatula. Tightly knot the back and let extra fabric hang to create fun streamers. Kids will enjoy making and playing with these homemade noisemakers.
