4th of July Crafts\

Hello Friends! How are your 4th of July plans shaping up?  Whether you are taking in a barbecue, heading to the beach or just hanging at home, we have a few fun craft ideas for you to make with your children. Whether you are hosting your own style of summer camp or just looking to get the kids to do something creative, we’ve got lots of inspiration here.

It’s hard to believe the Fourth of July is almost here. We always spend our day outdoors with friends. Nighttime is filled with nearby fireworks and music. It’s one of those days that I wish could go on for hours.


If you are looking for ideas for a barbecue or potluck, you may want to make this patriotic ice cream, or check out our collection of 4th of July Dessert Ideas.

Mix it into the cream and condensed milk.
