Rainy Day 4th of July Craft for Kids

Share It:

Happy 4th of July everyone!  God Bless America and let's be grateful that some brave men and women ventured out and dared to create such a beautiful country! 

If you are like me and are on the East coast you are probably watching your 4th of July festivities get washed away by rain and thunderstorms.
Sigh. So now you've got a ton of paper plates and hot dogs and no place to go (wait, is that a Meatloaf song? Don't you love Meatloaf?  Aside from Paradise by the Dashboard Light---it's about WHAT?? I always loved "All Revved up and No Place to Go because that is kind of how I spent a lot of my weekends in high school! I became a cool kid later on. Most of my weekends were spent in my friend, Jeannine's, room practicing French or going to see a Kevin Costner movie).  

Anyway, Sunshine and Hurricanes (so apropos this weekend for us here in Jersey) has a great idea for a patriotic craft for kids using simple materials like coffee filters. I thought it was a brilliant way to keep the spirit of the holiday present while the rain pours down and to keep the kiddos from being locked in the garage (Don't email me. I really don't lock them in the garage.)

Isn't it so cute?  Michelle has the whole procedure on the post so please visit her! And remember to pin from the original source!  

I plan on using the same basic methods but using those flimsy white paper plates instead, mostly because I don't keep filters in the house. But I can see how this would really work best with coffee filters.

Enjoy your holiday and weekend!
