Fourth of July Crafts and Activities

Wow! The 4th of July is really sneaking up on us quickly and it's about time we share some fun patriotic themed crafts and activities. If you have some of your own to share please feel free to add your links in the comments.

Start your search for great star and firework themed crafts in last year's round up of Patriotic Goodies!
Last year ABC & 123 also hosted a Picnic Table Talk blog hop where you shared your great ideas for teaching children about freedom and inpendence. To reference this great list, you will find the links here.

I, List Maker Katie, shared about our family's easy to adapt Independence Day tradition of creating a patriotic parade. The same post includes several fun craft ideas such as pipe cleaner fireworks and starry night visors.

Roots and Wings Co. put togehter an amazing wind chime for Flag Day that would also be perfect for the 4th of July.

Lucky little Molly at Life of a Modern Mom models some adorable handmade red, white, and blue flip flops!

Our friend, Mama King, shares instructions for putting together festive ribbon crowns for the patriotic princess in your life.

  2. Thanks for linking up to my flag chime! I love it! ;)

  3. We've been doing a 4th of July theme this week! Please feel free to stop by. So far, we've made a windsock, juice pops, flip-flop wreath, and a torn paper flag!


  4. We've been loving the song Yankee Doodle at our house, so we decided to make Yankee Doodle hats, complete with macaroni and feathers. :) We also borrowed the fireworks craft posted above and had a blast with it.
