Is their really any holiday better than the 4th of July???? Sunshine. BBQS. Parades. Family. Friends. Fireworks. I love this holiday.
We love to start celebrating a few weeks early with a couple of fun and easy Fourth of July crafts. A lot of our crafts revolve around toilet paper tubes….because you really can’t get any cheaper than toilet paper tubes, right?!?! This craft is one that we do every year. It is so simple and easy!
You will need to collect a few toilet paper tubes. I used three toilet paper tubes so that I could have one for each color of paint: red, white and blue.
dug the toilet paper tubes out of the trash collected three toilet paper tubes, we began to cut around the bottom. We cut thin strips, about half way up all around the tube. Once your strips are all cut, fan them out so the bottom is flat.
Dip each toilet paper tube in paint and begin stamping on your paper.
Once our sky was full of fireworks we decided to sprinkle glitter on the paint to give it a little extra sparkle. I used what I had at home, blue and gold. I really liked the way the glitter helped the firework stamps to stand out.
We have our firework stamps hung up on the fridge. It is a fun reminder of the Independence Day we get to celebrate soon!
