3. 4th Of July Ribbon Crown
This ribbon crown is a cute, inexpensive 4th Of July craft as it also only requires three materials. Simply attach some red, white, and blue ribbon as well as star garland on some pipe cleaner or pliable wire, if you want something sturdier, then size to fit your child’s head. To add a bit of flare, try adding flowers in patriotic colors around the crown base. For instructions and suggestions for where to purchase the materials click here.
4. Patriotic Poppers
Nothing says 4th Of July has arrived like fireworks, and these poppers are a definite kid friendly option that are sure to cause excitement. To create these poppers, you will need toilet paper rolls, balloons, tape, confetti, and anything you would like to use to decorate the outside of the tube. Children (and adults) can customize their poppers however they like before filling with confetti and popping them for a delightful confetti surprise. I would definitely recommend popping them outside as the confetti is sure to make a mess, but also bring plenty of joy. Detailed instructions can be found here.
5. Paper Lanterns
These paper lanterns are super easy to make and are very appealing to look at. Children who are old enough to use scissors will be able to enjoy creating these 4th of July lanterns. Similar to the other crafts, these lanterns can be customized to suit your child’s style so they can feel free to get creative with glitter, ribbon, and stickers depending on what they like. You can find the step-by-step instructions here.
5. Star Art
This is a completely mess free craft for kids that is very creative. Since younger children can easily make a mess with paint, this parent blogger came up with a simple and inexpensive way to keep painting mess and worry free. Have your child create these adorable stars then stick them in a shoe box with a non-detachable lid. Then, take a plastic ball and dip it in paint before putting it in the shoe box, closing the lid, and shaking it around. This will keep the paint contained and adds a fun element to painting that children will enjoy. Here are the instructions to create this cute star art.
