Did the holiday sneak up on you? I have been traveling, and I can’t believe it is already July 2nd? Where did June go? Well, I collected some of our favorite red, white, and blue 4th of July crafts for you to do. They are SO easy you can totally do them last minute!

Totally making some of these with my kids today! Thanks for the fun ideas!
After several experiments with making slime I found one that is perhaps my favorite for now. Rae was able to also make it and is having a lot of fun with it. One needs glue or glitter glue, great idea for 4th of July, etc, & Tide, not a lot of it. The other ones i have tried have been difficult and have gotten everything messy. While this is a bit messy it is an easy clean up.
My other favorite is to take one’s favorite graham cracker and some frosting (Betty Crocker if one is gf) and sprinkles. Frost the grahams or breakfast cookies, or whatever you want and add the frosting & then with supervision let one’s child go to town with the sprinkles. Rae loved doing this too for July 4th but it can be done at other times including for birthday parties.
