Here are a few fun details to add to the party this year and make July 4th extra special for the little ones. This is a super easy way to make a cool and festive party cup without using disposable cups.
Grayson helped me decorate some small mason jars with red, white and blue felt star stickers.
We added a fun paper straw and some strawberry lemonade and he was as happy as could be!
No one wants to be baking in July! For an easy special treat we cut stars out of an ice cream sandwich using a very small cookie cutter. The kids quickly rolled them in sprinkles and we laid them on wax paper to go back into the freezer. So easy and my kids loved making them (and eating them!!)
You can easily change these up for any party theme with all sorts of shapes and colored sprinkles.
These disposable tins are great for crayon making. Add your old broken crayons and pop into the oven for a few minutes (300 degrees.) Once melted just pour right into a candy mold. We used stars for this 4th of July.
Pop into the freezer for about 10 minutes and your crayons fall right out of the molds. If you would rather more prominent colors--melt each color in separate tins.
These would be fun to have at the kids table and also has a cool party favor.
I shared these ideas and many more over at Kiwi Crate. Head there to check out more.
Happy 4th of July! Make wonderful memories, eat great food, laugh, love and be safe!!!
