Easy 4th of July Crafts for Toddlers


Easy 4th of July Crafts for Toddlers!

There are so many cute crafts you can do with your kiddos for the 4th of July, it’s endless! However, I know that life can get chaotic and you may not be able to go to the store to get any fancy supplies! With me being a stay-at-home mom with what we like to call an indoor farm, sometimes it’s just easier to do a simple craft! Plus, until your kiddo is around two, they probably won’t be able to do much that doesn’t involve messy paint or crayons! So, I’ve put together a list of some easy 4th of July Crafts for toddlers!

Why do crafts? There are many reasons to do crafts with your little one! Crafts help with sensory & art development and can also help develop their fine motor skills! Crafts are a good way to change a routine up if your toddler is starting to get bored! And, they can be a cheap activity too! If you’re anything like me, as a stay-at-home mom with 11 mouths to feed, you need cheap! {Don’t worry, some are fur-babies!}

1. Hand Print Crafts

1. Hand Print Flag on a Stick

I thought this was so cute! To make it easier you can leave the stick without the aluminum foil and it’d still be super cute! Depending on the size of your kiddo’s hand and if they squeeze their hand (like mine does) you can try painting every other finger white to make sure you don’t miss the white stripes!

2. Hand Print American Flag

This one is super easy! All you really need your toddler for is the blue hand print! Super cute, frame it and keep it as 4th of July decor!

3. Hand Print Flag Shirt

This one is adorable! You can do it while they are young and when they grow out of the t-shirt you can put it on a keepsake bear! Or wait till they are older and aren’t rapidly growing! haha, If you want to do it now and are worried about the size, then just get a bigger size t-shirt and it will be big the first year and fit perfect by the next year! –Unless your Little grows nonstop!

Foot print Crafts

1. Foot Print Flag Pole

This one is perfect to give to that super patriotic grandparent! It’s easy and only needs a few materials! To make it even easier, omit the glitter!

2. Foot Print Fireworks

If you’ve got a stack of flag crafts and want something different, check this one out!

I couldn’t find the actual page from where this craft came from. I found the website called “House of Burke”, but all the buttons/links I clicked on would lead me to other pages such as buying a car, etc. So, I think maybe it is no longer an active site?

Either way, a “first” any holiday needs memorabilia!! Why not make it a painted print of their little toes??

Now go have fun & make memories!

There are a bunch more crafts that you can do with toddlers, more so the older ones! I wanted to give a list of specific ones that are doable for younger toddlers and even babies! Trust me when I say that I have tried some crafts that were supposedly doable for 1 year olds but OMG…no.. just no! haha #messyflashbacks

So, these should be just fine for your little one! Crafts may become stressful or messy, but that won’t matter at the end of the day! What will matter is the smile on your babies face, the keepsake you’ll have forever, and the memories you’ll store in your heart! There’s always grace in the midst of chaos!
