Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays, and my boys love it just as much as I do! To get ready for the holiday, we enjoy creating fun Independence Day themed decorations from some basic supplies and recyclables. Here is a list of some of our favorites from over the years.
The great thing about these patriotic crafts for kids is that they can be as simple or as complicated as you make them. Either way they offer a great opportunity to teach your kids a bit about the holidays and our country without it feeling like a school lesson!
These paper roll American flags are super cute to place on the fireplace mantel or string up to hang on your front door.
With Independence Day right around the corner, now is a great time to talk to kids about America’s national bird, the Bald Eagle. Shortly after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, a committee was formed in order to choose the design for the national seal. However, all the committee members had different ideas, and not one of them included the bald eagle!
Since we are talking about patriotic symbols, we have to include the Statue of Liberty!
When I think of the 4th of July my mind goes straight to the fireworks! The bright colors, loud bang, and the fizzle as they fall to the ground all make for an amazing experience. These simple firework stamps made from toilet paper tubes will be sure to dazzle.
