4th of July is coming and, although my king hasn't really been to a "real" 4th of July celebration, we always take it as a time to craft. Which I admit it really isn't surprising considering there's ALWAYS a reason to do arts and crafts. (◠ᴗ◕✿)
I have someone that tells me that sometimes a lot of crafts are for older kids so I put up this small round-up of craft ideas you can do with younger ones, like my awesome 2-year-old king. Personally, I'm one of those people that believes a messy kid is a sign of a kid that's been having fun, so yes...we get messy with some of these. Like I said, that's the fun part!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE handprint/footprint crafts, so I think these flags are super cute idea for Independence Day.
This is another flag but instead of handprint it uses sponge-printing. I don't have a star cookie cutter but you can use one to make the stars on the flag which would be easier than cutting a sponge I think. (◠ᴗ◕✿)
I found this poem and I think it's a nice addition to the flags.

Can't forget the fireworks!
And just because my king loves gluing and puppets!

If you do any of these, or any other crafts, this 4th of July I'd love to see what you and your babies have made!
