Do this fun craft with your kids for 4 July!
You will need some colored rice (here is how we make ours), paper or cardboard, craft glue, earbuds / qtips and a tray so that the rice is contained.
We started out by making the square and spreading the glue evenly with the ear bud. make sure you add a few white rice grains for the stars among the blue rice. It is a pain to add later.
Cover with the rice and pat gently to make sure all is sticking in the glue. Gently lift the paper and let the loose grains slide off. Next, make the glue strips for the red. Add the red color rice, pat, lift paper to remove extras. For the white strip I used the ear bud to spread the glue further so that there was not too much empty space.
And there you have it, A Color Rice American Flag!
Of course you will have some rice left over, so why not make some fireworks too!! (Spread the glue in a pattern, sprinkle rice, pat, lift paper to remove extra.)
Little hands are always eager to help! My 2 year old left his painting to come see what the 4 year old and I were up to 🙂
Have a good 4 July!!
