4th of July crafts for kids they'll love

Remember the good old days of summer crafting as a kid? The smell of glue sticks and the endless glitter that somehow found its way into every corner of the house?

As fun as those days were, let’s be honest, our Fourth of July crafts back then were a bit… um, macaroni art level. But, the world of 4th of July crafts for kids has evolved, and it’s more exciting than ever!

Now, before we dive into this firework display of creativity, let me confess something: As a kid, the actual fireworks of the Fourth of July? Not my cup of tea. The noise, the mess – it was like a sensory overload for my little self.

Give me a quiet corner and some craft supplies, and I was in my happy place.

So, if your kids are anything like I was, or even if they adore the booms and bangs, these crafts are the perfect way to enjoy the holiday without the earplugs.
