Fourth of July Fun~1

I decided to be a good mom and allow the girls to do a craft that involved glue. And glitter. I don't enjoy glitter, because of the mess, but I endured and prayed that they wouldn't make too much of a mess.

We made cupcake liner fireworks as featured by No Time for Flashcards. All you need is white cupcake liners, red and blue markers, glue, glitter (gasp!), blue or black construction paper, and scissors.

Step 1: Using red and blue markers, color the liners in a festive patriotic patterns.

Step 2: Fold the cupcake liner several times and cut slits in it. We did Kayleigh's for her because a) She can't cut. b) She ran out of the room when she heard Wonder Pets come on.

A finished firework. So lovely and not as noisey as the real thing.

Step 3: Glue your fireworks onto your "sky."

Step 4: Add more glue directly onto the fireworks and then glitter away. It was Kayleigh's first time with glitter and she was quite pleased with herself. And, although she repeated stuck the shaker right into the glue, she didn't make too big of a mess. So I might let her partake again.

Would you believe that I didn't take a picture of the girls with their finished products? Shameful, I know. We had an outing to get ready for so I didn't get around to it. Maybe I'll take one tomorrow and post it in their weekly wrap-ups. Of course, those will be late since we're going out-of-town for the weekend. LOL
