Fourth of July Crafty Weekends Link Party

We are getting ready to watch the fireworks for Independence Day at my parents tonight. I spent the day playing mini golf with Hazel and my nephew and then the three of us headed to the John F. Kennedy Museum in Hyannis to check it out (it is the centennial celebration there). I am in full vacation mode and did not do crafts this week, so I thought I would share a few of my favorite patriotic crafts from the past.

1) States Frame (A perfect craft to do while participating in our USA State Postcard Exchange! We still have many openings so let me know if you will participate!)

2) Shell Sailboats

3) TP Roll Rockets

4) Recycled Utensil Cups

5) Painted Fireworks

Thank you to everyone who shared with us at our last party!! It was on the small size, but full of great creations!! Below are some features from the party, but this is just a small sample of great ideas shared! This week we have one group of features and since I am in my Fourth of July celebration mode, I am featuring a bunch of patriotic ones. I hope all who are in the USA have a very Happy & Safe Independence Day!!

Also remember for your child-oriented crafts, activities, lessons, etc. Sharing Saturday is going on!! For any cultural related posts (diversity and/or multicultural as well) be sure to share at the month long Creative Kids Creative Blog Hop.
