4th of July is just around the corner. I used to not be a big fan of the holiday because we didn’t ever do much for it, but in recent years, we have started to make a much bigger deal about the holiday. After all, why shouldn’t we celebrate the Independence Day of our country? Of course, 4th of July is not the only holiday where patriotic crafts are necessary (you can do these for Memorial Day, Labor Day, and President’s Day), but it definitely my favorite patriotic holiday. I love how many amazingly creative patriotic crafts and activities for kids there are today. Take a look at this list of my favorite patriotic crafts and be inspired!
