Craft Roundup: Fourth of July Edition
Give your weekly dose of family crafting a patriotic DIY spin – just in time for Independence Day – with this batch of cool projects for kids and parents to make
Tomorrow is the big day – it's almost the Fourth of July! Whether you're off to a barbeque, aim to spend the day at the pool or just plan on taking it easy and enjoying some fireworks, I hope you have a fun day. You've still got time to whip up a few projects and decorations for your house to get your army of young crafters in the spirit.
Make sure you're ready for parties tomorrow with this simple jewelry craft from Amazing Moms. Make one for you and your family members – and then make a big batch to give out as gifts to guests if you're hosting a party.
Here's a craft project that can also double as a workout session! The Kids Activities Blog shows off this hands- and feet-on (literally) project that's great for younger crafters.
It's only fitting that a craft project from Epicurious involves Popsicle sticks. Gather leftover sticks or pick up a craft pack from your local craft supply store to create this patriotic garland that the whole family can help out with.
This star-shaped wound yarn project reminds me of Girl Scout camp activities. Check out Gingerbread Snowflakes to find out how you can not only make this colorful wreath, but also find a tutorial to learn how to make the stars. Why not have your family help with the stars and you assemble the wreath for the front door?
