Fun Friday: Crafts to prep for the 4th of July!

Independence day is right around the corner! Spend the weekend making fun crafts to celebrate and prepare for the holiday! Time to look for your red white and blue


  • Acrylic paint
  • Drinking straw
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper (or card stock)
  • Water


  1. For each color, in a paper cup, dilute some acrylic paint with water to a runny consistency.
  2. Using a paintbrush, drip a few drops of paint onto a piece of paper or card stock (be sure to rinse the brush between colors), then hold a drinking straw directly over each puddle of paint and blow gently to create a spectacular starburst effect.
