Five Fun Fourth of July Kids' Projects

The sun is shining, the sounds of boat motors and smells of BBQ grills are filling the air...and folks all around the country are getting ready to wave the flag in celebration of our nation’s birthday.

It was on this day, in 1776, that our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence, setting the table for our annual celebrations with our family, friends and communities!

If your gathering include some little ones, take a note - we’ve compiled a fun collection of crafts and food that will make the holiday extra fun and creative for them!


1. One thing we can count on on the Fourth of July - hot weather. This cool, layered drink recipe is refreshing, easy to make, and as you can see, very patriotic. Thanks to In Katrina’s Kitchen for the cool idea.


Show your spirit! This nifty guide for creating all kinds of red, white and blue apparel and accessories for the holiday was found on shelterness.


No Fourth of July celebration is complete without food...and no summer is complete without marshmallows! This guide for creating your own red, white and blue treats is part of a larger project we really liked, found on puertabella.blogspot.com.


Keep the kids busy and creative with a host of fun crafts - we found a lot we really like on the website Spoonful.


Temporary tattoos are a smash hit with kids of all ages, and this idea from Alex Toys is ultra simple and completely fun.

Do you have a fun craft project or food you’re whipping up for the fourth? Leave us a comment and tell us about it!
