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. Some of these we’ve done ourselves, many of these brilliant ideas are from other blogs.
First, of all, you know you can turn any favorite art activity into a patriotic one by using red, white, and blue paint (or collage materials, drawing materials, etc), right? Some favorites that would work especially well are:
- Spin Art
- Marble Rolling
- Shaving Cream Marbling
- Watercolor fireworks and suns (drag a toothpick through a puddle of watercolor paint)
- Watercolor and Salt Painting
But here some especially good art projects for the 4th of July (or any other time you might want something extra Patriotic)!
