Kids 4th of July Crafts Supplies
Red, white, and blue acrylic paint
Paint brush or sponge
Mason Jar Table Décor
Step 1: Choose three mason jars to create a festive center piece. I suggest a small, medium, and large jar.
Step 2: Use painters tape to create stripes or a pattern of your choice on the jar.
Step 3: Paint the clear spaces of the jar. Use red, white, or blue paint to create a 4th of July theme
Step 4: Using the sponge, fully cover the remaining jars in a solid color, one blue and one white.
Step 5: Use a star stencil to add stars to the solid jars for a more patriotic feel.
Step 5: Stage your mason jars. Add flowers, tea lights, or ribbon to pull the look together!
American Flag Crafts Kids can Paint!
Step 1: Choose two canvases of the same size.
Step 2: Paint one canvas solid blue and use painters tape to create stripes on the other flag.
Step 3: Paint the white spaces on the striped canvas with red paint.
Step 4: Use stencils or free hand paint stars onto the blue canvas. The sponge brush works perfectly for this portion of the project.
Step 5: Peel off tape and remove stencil to reveal your patriotic canvas!
Patriotic Hand Print Star
Kids’ 4th of July crafts might need to be a little messy to be fun. Ditch the brush on this preschool 4th of July craft and let your little one use her hands instead!
Step 1: Paint a square canvas blue and secure a star stencil to the canvas using painters tape
Step 2: Paint your child’s hands and press them inside the star shape. If you are creating the star without a child or want less mess, simply use sponges to sponge paint onto the star
Step 3: Remove your stencil and enjoy your artwork!
I just love these simple 4th of July crafts for preschoolers because they are so fun and perfect for families. Use your new patriotic décor to decorate your home or for your Independence Day celebrations. Your children will be so proud to see their work on display! Combine any of these projects and create a beautifully festive centerpiece or an art display for your family and friends! Enjoy.
