Patriotic Crafts for Kids
With the 4th of July right around the corner, it’s time to break out the red, white, and blue crafts. Our kids love creating for this fun holiday.
Of course, you have to have fireworks. From simple snakes to the spectacular shows.
But a lot of the fun happens in the evenings. Patriotic crafts are a fun way to kill time before the main event.
Don’t forget, you can also make these crafts in May for Memorial Day!
