The perfect easy 4th of July activity for kids.
Is their really any holiday better than the 4th of July???? Sunshine. BBQS. Parades. Family. Friends. Fireworks. I love this holiday. And I love celebrating it with my three kiddos. Here is an easy Fourth of July Craft for kids we like to do every year.
A lot of our crafts revolve around toilet paper tubes….because you really can’t get any cheaper than toilet paper tubes, right?!?!

- Three toilet paper tubes (or more if you prefer)
- Acrylic Paint (I chose red, white and blue…because I’m original like that…..)
- Construction paper (any color, but I recommend white or black)
Prepping Your Easy Fourth of July Craft
Now that you have your supplies, it’s time to do a little prep work.
You will need to cut thin strips all along the bottom of each toilet paper tube. Cut them about half way up the tube.
Once your strips are cut, fan them out so the bottom is flat.
Now for the FUN part!!
Dip each toilet paper tube in paint and begin stamping fireworks onto your paper. It will form a fireworks design.
Add Some Bling
Once your paper is full of fireworks, you can sprinkle some glitter on top of the paint to give it a little extra sparkle.
I love the way the glitter helps the fireworks stand out even more.
All Done! Hang your fireworks craft up for the world to see!
I hope you have so much fun crafting with your kiddos! This is one of the easiest, but most fun, crafts out there. Perfect for all ages@
