Pinterest is a great site, and I regularly find things that I want to save and try again some day. This year I actually tried some of the 4th of July crafts and activities I’ve pinned over the years and it really was a lot of fun. Here’s the round-up!
Straw Rockets – Can you see the supplies (blue straws) in the middle of the pile? Basically you just make a little paper tube (decorate like a rocket if you wish), stick it on the straw, and then blow! Isn’t that simple?
Sparkle Bottles – If you don’t add water, then they’re sparkle rattles.
Ribbon Wands – I remember making some of these several years ago, with a St. Patrick’s Day theme. Just tie some ribbon to a ring (these were shower curtain rings) or to an eye hook on the end of a dowel. Then put on some music and dance!
Ring Toss – The idea was to throw rings made of glow sticks over little flags stuck in the ground, but we just played with each item separately and still had a grand time.
