Make It Monday- Fourth of July Ideas

4th of July T-shirts Easy and fun for kids to make themselves. 

Several weeks ago, I created a Board on Pinterest with Ideas for Fourth of July with high plans to work on the crafts and do some fun things.  Well, tomorrow starts the week before the Fourth and guess what, I haven't planned anything HA! 

For example, these great little t-shirts (I'm still hoping to do these on Wednesday with the kids I babysit too . . )

 4th of July Craft for Kids...easy jar candle for outdoor decoration or kids' night light. My toddler and preschooler loved making these!

 Or these great jars that could be used with a candle or with a nightlight in the kids room.

Fun idea for any kind of lawn painting ... not just stars!!! Even Happy Birthday would be cute!!My husband just mowed the back yard so spray painting this in the yard - while it's the perfect time. (But first I must spray for mosquitos!!  Uuuggg!)

 Fireworks made with a Fork and craft paint, quick and easy craft ideas for kids, 4th of July art projects #JULY4th, #fireworks, #KidCraftsMy kids love to paint so these would make a fun craft this week too.

These Red, white, and blue 4th of July Firecracker Jell-O Cups will be the hit at your Independence Day celebrations. Super simple layers of Jell-O in small cups with a cherry on top to resemble a firecracker.We are going to my in-laws on Saturday to watch Fireworks from their boat . .. I might make these to take for the picnic.  Josh loves Jello and I know these would be a big hit.

Fourth of July Crafts: Tissue Paper Flag SuncatcherI'd also like to try and get these made this week.  The boys love the flag right now so this would be a pretty easy and fun craft to do.

This looks fun for the picnic too.  I tend to keep cupcakes simple (In other words, use a box mix) but love to do stuff with the topping to make them fun.  My boys love cupcakes so . .. .

If I do any of these things ;-)  I'll be sharing them in future weeks on Monday!
