Get crafting

Think out the box with these kids crafts:

  1. Poster: Get creative with crayons, chalks, pens, or paints and find fun things to draw like firework scenes in a night sky.
  2. DIY safe sparkler: Make your own pretend ‘sparklers’ with tin foil, glue, glitter, sequins or sparkly stick-on gems from a craft shop. Rip the foil into long strips, glue them together about one third of the way up, and allow the longer lengths to cascade down – a bit droopy flowers.
  3. Glue to the tips of the foil, sprinkle with glitter, sequins, or gems for a dazzling finish and enjoy!
