One of the best things about the 4th of July is the time that you get to spend with your family celebrating Independence Day with 4th of July crafts, food, and fireworks. Every year my kids and I prepare for the 4th by putting together a list of fun patriotic activities that they want to do the most. Of course, my kids usually go straight for the 4th of July DIY accessories that they can wear to our annual red, white, and blue bash. This year my daughter insists upon making the Patriotic Firecracker Tie Dye T-Shirt to wear to the party. Lately, she has been all about the tie dye shirt activities. It’s such an adorable shirt that it made the kids’ crafts list immediately.
I love kids’ crafts like these because they are all so simple and inexpensive. My kids can do most of these crafts by themselves, which I find they enjoy even more because they like to make crafts and then surprise me when they’re finished.
