4th of July Craft


The 4th of July is right around the corner. There will be family barbecues, sparklers and people celebrating America's independence all over the country soon. With little ones, fireworks are fun to watch but not always the safest activity.

I love having fun ways for my kids to celebrate the holiday with the whole family. I came up with this easy craft that the kids can help make and will have fun playing with too!

These 4th of July pom pom poppers are a fun and safe way to have some fun this Independence Day!pom-pom-popper-supplies_fullsizeSupplies:
