Here are some SIMPLE ideas (from Pinterest) with supplies you already have on hand to do with kids for the 4th of July:
Cupcake Liner Fireworks
|Left and center are my 3 year old's|
|The 5 year old did all of this by herself (with supervision!)|
Step 1: Have kids scribble all over cupcake liners with red and blue markers (add silver glitter glue if you're daring!).
Step 2: When they dry, fold them into wedges and cut as close to the center as you want without cutting all the way through (otherwise you'll have shreds).
Step 3: Have the kids glue the centers onto a piece of construction paper or a long banner if you really want to keep them occupied. My 3 and 5 year olds enjoyed this a lot!

Happy 4th everyone!
