Fourth of July Crafts for Kids: Flour Lawn Stars. Cut out star stencil, sprinkle grass with water (to make the flour stick) and then sprinkle with flour. This idea also works for Canada's July Birthday. Just substitute the star for a Maple Leaf.
DIY Beverage and Paper Goods Station ~ so easy to make and could be used for any event from a Backyard Cookout to a Holiday Get Together. And the paper goods can be switched by color so easily for any event.
