Do you normally do Fourth of July crafts with your little one? If not, start this year! There are so many fun ideas that you and your preschooler can do together. If you have time off from work this year or just want to make this holiday extra special for your child, try one of these craft ideas!
Make firework handprints!
A grouping of little handprints looks very similar to fireworks! Take some heavy construction paper, some red and blue paints, and help your preschooler dip their hands in the paint and press it down on the construction paper. You’ll want to rotate the paper so their hands form an outward facing circle mimicking the shape of a firework. Afterwards, the fireworks can be decorated with markers or sprinkled with glitter (while the paint is still wet). After it’s finished, hang up your child’s artwork for guests coming in town to see!
Create a paper chain to decorate inside!
Paper chains are oh so easy and very kid-friendly. Cut up strips of red, white, and blue paper and then let help your child staple each loop together. Let them pick the order of the colors and decide where to hang it in your house!
Make some festive place cards!
If you’re having a big group of people over for the Fourth, a good way to make everyone feel welcome is to have a designated seating arrangement. Let your preschooler take the lead on decorating each place card and deciding where guests will sit. Then, when they’re done making the place cards beautiful and festive, write the names on them and let your little one help you set them out. Then, wait for the party to begin!
Fourth of July crafts are fun for all! Spend quality time this holiday making memories with your child.
