Easy 4th of July Projects To Do With Your Kids

By Terri O, www.supersimpleliving.com

When it comes to a super simple 4th the first thing to think about is what to wear! You have to be festive and fun, while you show off your patriotic colors!

Pick up an inexpensive t-shirt at the discount store. Grab some cardboard or heavy paper and cut out a few stars and lay them on your shirt. Fill a couple of containers with an acrylic paint mixture and spray away! The results are amazing and you will be THE patriotic fashionista!

For your table grab a few terra cotta pots and paint them red, white and blue. Make each one different. Place a citronella candle in each one and set them in the center of your table. They are festive and keep the bugs away.

To carry all of your wine, tableware and whatever else you need to take to the party save a cardboard wine carrier from the wine store, paint it, embellish it and use it as a carryall to your July 4th event.
