The 4th of July is a time for fireworks and barbecues. If you’re looking for fun July 4th activities to try with your kids, then look no further. These diy crafts are fun for the entire family.
Red and Blue Paint
Bend the straws at a right angle and then tape them together to form a pinwheel.
Dip all the straws in the blue paint and apply to the white paper.
Then do the same thing with the red paint.
After a little practice, you can even combine the two colors together. Now you have your July 4th fireworks!
Use the wipes to clean your hands and table.
I usually follow up with a discussion on Independence Day; depending on the grade and ability level. For younger students, I work on following directions and I review the sequence of steps. For older students, I have them write a sentence or paragraph about the 4th of July.
