These kid-friendly sparklers are super easy to make and little digits will remain attached to little hands.
I don’t remember much about the Fourth of July as a 3-year-old– just a bunch of grown-ups talking in hushed voices about dangerous things. There may have been a few car rides from Massachusetts to more firework-friendly New Hampshire. I learned about “China” not because my ancestors came from there, but because the good stuff was made there. I also learned the difference between “legal” and “illegal.”
This Fourth of July project can be completed with a quick, not-at-all-shady trip to the craft store.
- Shredded foil paper
- Craft tape
- Paper straws
Grab small clumps of foil paper (about 10 strands each color).
Shake ’em like they’re hot! Happy Birthday, America!
