Fourth of July Star Wreath Crafts for Kids


Are you getting ready for the 4th of July? We used to have a big party every year for the 4th of July. We lived on Mt. Washington in Pittsburgh which is a neighborhood that overlooks the downtown city skyline.

We had all of our friends and family over for an all day party, cook out and to watch the fireworks. I have a lot of memories from those parties!
Anyway, now we celebrate a little more quietly.
The kiddos and I got out paint, paper plates and paper to create a Fourth of July decoration. 

First I drew a bunch of stars on paper. As my sweet Annabelle told me, "those don't look like stars, Mommy!" Well, I tried.  



Then they painted to their hearts content.


They used brushes, sponges and, of course, their fingers!


Once the paint dried Annabelle and I cut out the stars. I then cut out the middle of the paper plates to turn them into wreaths.


Then they glued the stars onto the paper plates. Pretty simple right?


Happy 4th of July!
