Fourth of July Crafts

We spent part of today working on some 4th of July crafts. First, we tried to make these fireworks paintings from Preschool Playbook. Neither of the kids had the patience for painting the doilies, however, and after trying one decided to free-hand them. This is what we ended up with (M is on the left, J on the right.)
Next, J made this great hanging mobile from Explorations. We painted two paper plates and cut them into spirals for the mobile. Then we cut out stars from construction paper, painted them with glue and sprinkled on glitter. When they were dry we punched holes and attached everything with wrapping paper ribbon.

We also read the book "The Flag We Love" by Pam Munoz Ryan. (Thanks Mom!)

We will have to see if tomorrow's crafts turn out any closer to the originals!
