Need a quick, fun and easy project for the kids to put together for the 4th of July or even on the 4th to keep them occupied untill the fireworks begin? These 4th of July Leis are just the project for kids of all ages Using only paper, a paper punch, string and straws, you will have a festive lei in no time.
Here’s What You Need:
Step 1: Punch out the flowers in red, white, and blue paper. Then go ahead and punch the centers of the flowers with your standard paper punch.
Step 2: Cut the straws to be about a 3/4″ – 1″ long.
Step 3: Cut your string to the desired length of your lei.
To make this a simple craft activity, you can have all of these steps done ahead of time and place each of these items in a bowl. For younger kids, this is great because you don’t have to worry about them cutting the straws which can be a little slippery. For the younger kids too, put a piece of scotch tape at the end of your lei and wrap it around. This will work just like a needle when threading everything on the string.
So fun and easy! The perfect craft for all ages on the 4th of July!
