4th of July crafts for kids

June 292011

4th of July is at our doorstep and it’s time to get ready for the big day. My favorite mom blogger wrote a great post about making confetti popper rockets. They look really cool and it is easy to make them. Even kids can make them.

popperockets

You will need the following supplies:

Paper towel or toilet paper tubes cut to rocket-like lengths
colored paper (we chose patriotic colors and used everything from origami paper to scrapbook paper), make sure you have at least one sheet of something stiffer, like card stock too
tissue paper (we used red)
stickers and marker pens (feel free to get crazy here) to decorate with
confetti (homemade or store-bought
bakers twine or string
tape
glue (any kind that works on paper will do)
beads (these will not show so it doesn’t matter what they look like)
ribbons for streamers
