Fourth of July Crafts for Kids: Flour Lawn Stars. Cut out star stencil, sprinkle grass with water (to make the flour stick) and then sprinkle with flour. This idea also works for Canada's July Birthday. Just substitute the star for a Maple Leaf.
Ribbon and twinkle lights These are colors I like for the ribbons. reds, light blues and yellows. maybe no pink, add light green? break up color with some off-white ribbon. idea is colorful without being full on rainbow.
