Other July 4th Crafts and Activities:
Kristle Jones presents Project Idea: Colored Rice posted at Will Blog for Babies, saying, “A Craft Project for Kids of All Ages–make your own colored rice craft. The colored rice can be used in lieu of sand in a sand box or as decorative art on a piece of paper with glue.” This would work for a fun tactile activity on Independence Day, if you dye the rice red and blue.
Silicon Valley Blogger presents Cheap Barbecue And Safe Fireworks: Our Fun Family Extravaganza posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “Wanted to share how we spent 4th of July a few years ago. We’ll be doing this again! Here are cheap ideas to spend the day.”
