We hope that Mother Nature is kind to your 4th of July celebration and that sunny skies prevail.  But if you do happen to find yourself stuck inside on a rainy day, Amy at Honeybear Lane has a patriotic activity to keep the kids occupied: sand art!  I remember doing sand art with my grandmother many years ago, and my cousins and I were completely fascinated with it.  Keep an eye on the floral section at Dollar Tree for decorative sand that is perfect for this project!  [how to make 4th of July sand art]
