11 Patriotic Art Projects for Kids

July 4th is almost here and since we like to celebrate any and all holidays with creative projects as much as anything else (yummy food! fireworks!), I thought I’d share some ideas for kid-friendly patriotic art projects.

But here some especially good art projects for the 4th of July (or any other time you might want something extra Patriotic)!

    These are great ideas! My kids (especially my twelve year old) love crafts and they’re all about the 4th of July right now. I think we’ll try the blow art, it looks like fun!
