Passport to Summer Challenge Day 11: Fourth of July Flare!

Combine the images of Independence Day with your children's imagination to create the perfect Fourth of July crafts.

Fourth of July Star Wand- For this craft you'll need popsicle sticks, glue, red, white, and blue construction paper, & red and blue ribbon. First cut the construction paper into large red stars, medium blue stars, and small white stars. Layer and glue the red stars on the bottom, then blue, and then white. Glue the stars to a popsicle stick and tie the ribbon around the stick.

Fireworks- For this craft all you need is a dark piece of construction paper, glitter, and glue. Squeeze the glue bottle to make fireworks designs. Then sprinkle glitter over top of the glue and shake off the excess glitter!

Popsicle Stick Flag- Help your kids glue 8 popsicle sticks together on a piece of paper or cardboard. Let them alternate coloring or painting the popsicle sticks red and white. Cut a blue rectangle out of paper or foam and glue it to the top left corner of the flag. Add sequins, rhinestones, or paper stars onto the blue rectangle.

We'll probably get sparklers. Firecracker laws are strict here.

We always go to a local parade, it's usually 2 - 2.5 hrs long in the hot hot sun!  Last year we made flag pins so I  need to come up with something for this year!  We will go to fireworks this year in our town.

These are cute ideas, especially for an older toddler. Thank you.  We don't go see the fireworks since the crowds got rowdy.
