Can you believe that the 4th of July is coming up so fast? Yea me neither. Where did the year go, and how is it possible that it is July already? It is here though, no matter how quickly it snuck up on us. For me though, I love this time of year. There is something about the long days, the heat of summer, watermelon, fireworks, sticky fingers and the smell of the grill going. Long lazy days, with nothing to do and no place to go. (Don’t you miss being a kid where you actually got the summer off? I know that I do.) What are your favorite parts of summer?
But this also brings kids stuck at home when it is too hot to play outside. Boredom often brings out whiny crabby attitudes. Add the heat to that, and it can be a recipe for disaster ruining your long lazy day. So here is my roundup of some best crafts for your kids this holiday weekend
Top 5 Best Crafts for 4th of July
- 4th of July Parade Wands
- OMG these are just so adorable and super easy to put together.
- American Flag from Popsicle Sticks
- I like it when my kids can actually do the entire craft…. by themselves!! This one is simple enough that anyone can do it without to much interference.
- 4th of July Paper Lanterns
- This is one of those crafts that is great for a slightly older kids. (Or even something that you might enjoy putting together) But little kids might need some extra help with putting them together.
- Shabby Chic American
- This is just so lovely!! Really you could use this idea and make all kinds of wall hangings for all the holidays. It is so easy to put together, and looks like something that you would buy from an expensive boutique.
- Flag 4th of July Tiara
- It does not get much easier then this. For all your little American Princesses, this is going to be a must. And you can whip these up in just a few moments.
These should keep your little ones busy for a bit. Maybe not the whole holiday weekend, but at least a good chunk of it. Plus you will feel accomplished looking at these amazing crafts for your home that you were able to create! Talk about a win-win.
