From parades to fireworks, the Fourth of July is such a fun time of year! My boys and I also had lots of fun creating some awesome red, white, and blue crafts to hang around our house. I’ve pulled together a list of 5 Simple Fourth of July Crafts for Kids that you can make with your little ones!
5 Simple Fourth of July Crafts for Kids
1. Color by Numbers
After reading F is for Flag by Wendy Lewison, I had my boys color in this color by numbers flag that I created. I’ve also attached a black and white version for you to print out for your little one to color.
2. Patriotic Wind Sock
This was a fun craft to create. First I had my boys glue white stars onto a sheet of blue construction paper. Next, I rolled it into a tube and stapled it together. Finally I had boys glue red and white stripes onto the bottom of the tube. This was a good way to work on patterns too! Finally, we added a red handle so we could hang out wind socks in the doorways. 3. American Flag Hand Print
To make this American flag hand print, I painted red and white stripes onto my boys’ hands. I added a blue square onto the bottom corner of their palms. We stamped their hands onto a sheet of white paper. Once their hand prints dried, I cut them out and we added a black flag pole.
Using a plastic fork, we stamped paint onto a sheet of white construction paper in circle patterns to make fireworks. Such an easy craft but one my boys really enjoyed!
5. Bald Eagle
To make this adorable bald eagle, paint the bottom of your child’s foot half white and half blue. Paint their toes orange. Stamp their foot onto a sheet of construction paper. Next, paint your child’s hand blue and stamp that one a sheet of construction paper. Once the hand print and foot print dry, cut them out. Glue the hand onto the foot print to make the bald eagles wing. Add an orange beak and wiggly eye.
