With the fourth of July approaching quickly I wanted to share some easy crafts for toddlers. I have two boys that are eleven months apart (Irish Twins – ages 4 and 4) which most of you know. I love making things with them and trying to think out of the box ideas to keep them busy. They are all reasonably priced, so you can let your imagination go wild and create some amazing pieces of art to display around your home. Please don’t forget to share in the comments your creations or any other ideas you may have.
Here is a short video showing some ideas that I have listed below and a few others, check it out.
- With a toilet paper roll cut one side with little strips. Let the strips fray out. Then dip in paint and you can make a firework on paper.
- Take red, white, and blue tissue paper and rip into small pieces. Then tape in the shape on a star cutout.
- With white paper plate paint, it red, white, and blue and then once dry cut it so it spirals out. Then you can hang it as an easy decoration.
- Make a red, white, and blue Statue of Liberty hats.
- Paint some rocks patriotic to add to your garden.
- With a flowerpot paint it red, white, and blue. Then you can plant a beautiful flower in it and use it as a centerpiece to your table.
- Decorate your own top hat with all kinds of stickers, sparkles, confetti, and more!
- Make your own star stencil and decorate your driveway or sidewalk using sidewalk chalk.
- Decorate a piece of paper with red, white, and blue then you can make paper lanterns to display on your mantel
Want more ideas? Want something a little more advanced?
- Make suncatchers with red, white, and blue tissue paper.
- A patriotic wreath with items you find around Dollar Store.

These are really cute ideas. Mine are 13, 11, and 8 and they still love sidewalk chalk and painting. They would probably do most of these now, ha! Thanks for sharing. ❤️
Great ideas. I think doing crafts with kids is important – creativity and just sense of play. Plus time spent together. Dig out the paints!!!
I might have to do some of these with my kids!
Love this kid-friendly fourth of July crafts! I will need to try with a Canada day flare to them! Thanks so much for another great tutorial, Ashley!

Great ideas! My kiddos and I love crafts, so much fun. Thanks for sharing!
These are adorable ideas and sound like a lot of fun! I may have to find a way to spin some of them with a Canadian focus for my nieces and nephews!
