POSH KIDS- Easy 4th of July decorations

It summer and we know the kids want and need to do something. Why not make planning and getting ready for your family or neighborhood party a family affair?!

These simple red, white and blue paper chains are the perfect family craft project.

Here’s what you will need:

 

Kids craft scissors (for more fun the scalloped scissors or anyones with a decorative cut enhances the look)

Red construction or cardstock paper

Blue construction or cardstock paper

White construction or cardstock paper

Glue dots or photo mounting squares

 

Step 1: Go to your nearest craft store and/ or craft closet and find your cardstock. For the best deal purchase 12 x12 Hobby Lobby and Michales frequently put these papers on sale. So keep your eyes open for an even better deal!

Step 2: Start to cut the strips at least an inch thick until you have the desired number of strips cut. This where the kids can start helping to cut, make sure you are guiding them in this process.

Step 3: Once all of your paper is cut assembly time begins

Step 4: Secure your first strip by connecting the ends by overlapping them with the glue dot. Repeat, repeat, repeat!

Once you have made your chain your desired length it can be used as garland, a back drop, hung from the ceiling the possibilities are endless.

Hope you enjoyed this simple idea.

While surfing the web this little nugget popped out to us on The Real Housemoms blog. So this variation is a nice twist on a classic.

Before getting started make sure you have all the proper supplies. Don’t have a muddler use the end of a wooden spoon, but you can find a great muddler at your nearby Target, Walmart, Pottern Barn well you get the point.
