I can’t believe the Fourth of July is already almost here. If you’re anything like me, and let it kind of sneak up on you… don’t worry, my Pinterest obsession has you covered! Here are a few fun and easy ideas for snacks, activities and decorations. These are just a few of my favorites, you can check out more from my 4th of July board. (Be warned, the board might be a little heavy on the snacks.)
Land That I Love Coloring Page – What’s easier than a coloring table? Print out some of these coloring pages, put some red, white and blue crayons out and you’re done. You can find the coloring page at Super Teacher Worksheets.
Fireworks in a Bottle – I really love this idea from No Twiddle Twaddle. I am planning on making this for my son, as it will be a great sensory toy for him to play with on the fourth. It seems simple enough, too. If you have a group of kids coming over for 4th of July, you could do it as a group craft.
Red White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake – I pinned quite a few fun snacks on my board but I had to choose this dessert from Two Sisters Crafting as my favorite because I love strawberry shortcake so much and this is really easy to do!
Kid-Friendly Patriotic Punch – Maybe I love this one because I’m in love with Twizzlers or maybe it’s because I am a firm believer that the beverages should always match the theme (I had a bit of a panic attack when my mom set out tea at my son’s UNO party) but I love this idea from Mom Endeavors. It is such a cute idea and you don’t have to deal with straws all over the ground because the kids can just eat them!
DIY Sparkler Tee – Here’s another one from Mom Endeavors (man, I love that site!). This tee really makes me wish I hadn’t already gotten my son’s 4th of July outfit. He’s a little young to do this as a craft but I definitely would like to try it out in the future. It seriously looks so easy, I have full confidence that even I can do it!
Fireworks Painting Craft – If you don’t know me by now, you will never ever know me… sorry, it’s like I have a jukebox for a brain. But seriously. If you don’t know, I love to do things that are easy. In my head I have this grand idea of being a super crafty, super fun, super cool mom but then I remember… I’m super lazy. This is why I love this craft idea from Happiness is Homemade. So easy and chances are you already have all the supplies.
DIY Patriotic Wreath – Full disclosure: this is a pin that I would send to my sister and say, “hey, we should do this!”. And by “we” she will know I mean she should do this. However, even though it may be slightly above my craft skill level it really does look easy for those that aren’t craft dummies like me. Plus, it’s just way too cute not to include. I love the touch of burlap! Get the how to at Living that Mom Life.
Painted Lawn Stars – I really love this idea! It’s fun, festive and… yep… you got it, easy. I would love to show up to a party and see the lawn littered with red, white and blue stars. You can check out the tutorial at The Concrete Cottage.
