If you are brave and not completely glitter-phobic like I am, go ahead and sprinkle some of the shiny stuff on there after your balloon printing, it'll be great!
Ok, so maybe I'm not COMPLETELY glitter-phobic. My older kiddos made glue and glitter fireworks this week and I must say, they came out so, so pretty. I might have to change my mind about glitter...maybe.
My toddlers created some paper plate 4th of July wreaths for the occasion. When doing this project with the little guys, I suggest using a more inner section of the plate, rather than the slanted outer portion which makes gluing difficult for little hands.
I challenged my Pre-K class with a group project, a giant American flag. I painted the red, white and blue sections on a large piece of cardboard and then they were tasked with filling in each section with the appropriate colors by cutting apart magazines.
And no 4th of July week would be complete without Fireworks in a Bag! For a complete explanation of how to do this project, visit last year's post here.
I will add that using very high quality bags makes a huge difference in the POP! So get the good bags!
Happy 4th of July!
