Whether your children love fireworks or not, they can still celebrate Independence Day with these unique Fourth of July kids crafts!
We did a lot of crafting as children in my family, but never much for the Fourth of July. My poor mom – there were five kids and so she probably just wanted the summer off!
I have to say though, I really love Fourth of July kids crafts . . . and it seems each year they are getting more and more clever.
Much better than when I was younger (I think back then we pretty much only had macaroni art). Whether or not your children love fireworks, they can still celebrate with these fun projects.
