I love Independence Day! My family usually spends the day celebrating freedom by eating awesome food, watching fireworks, and making fun & patriotic July 4th crafts with the kiddos…because really…who doesn’t love a good craft that gets your kiddos covered in some red, white, & blue paint?
There are so many craft ideas on the internet that trying to pick one can be a little overwhelming so I put together a little list for you (because I love lists). Scroll through to see my top 5 July 4th crafts for the kiddos this year!
July 4th Crafts for Kids
1. Cardboard Tube Fireworks – Happiness is Homemade
Cut slits on one end of some toilet paper or paper towels rolls to make these firework burst paintings. Repurposing & crafting with the kids…Two birds, one stone.
2. American Flag T-shirts – Kid Blog
This craft works as a sentimental keepsake & a piece of clothing! Again–>Two birds, one stone.
3. Star Spangled Slime – I Can Teach My Child
My kids love playing with Play Doh, putty, and slime! I think that this one will be a hit with all the littles!
4. Pom-Pom American Flag – Crafty Morning
Looking for a more creative way to paint? Try this project where your kiddos can paint with pom poms and clothes pins!
5. Patriotic Yogurt Popsicles – Faithful Farmwife (We needed an edible project in the mix!)
These yogurt popsicles are my kids’ favorite snack! They are so simple to make that the kids can pitch in or make these themselves. Yogurt pops are also healthy enough for a quick breakfast when you are short on time!
