The 4th of July is almost upon us and it is a great time to do a recap of some of the great ideas I see online. From crafts to education to food, there is a plethora of great ideas out there.
Let's start with Ms. M at Teaching Blog Addict and her adorable fireworks alphabet strip. She has generously offered free downloads of her strips. If you like this one, be sure to go to her blog and check out all of her other alphabet strips and some samples of how she uses them.
Next, head on over to Serendipity to see the adorable flag she made. I love it and think it would look great hanging in my home.
Are your kids too young for fireworks? Want to avoid the whole "fire" part of fireworks? Craft these adorable "Fireworks" from Make and Takes.
Looking for an eye-catching dessert to take to a cook out on the 4th? Nothing beats these great red, white and blue cupcakes from Recipe Girl. By the way - they look impressive but are low maintenance!
For a little healthier dessert you could always make the great fruit kabobs featured on Recipe Tips. I think they would also be great with raspberries or watermelon in place of the strawberries, blackberries in place of blueberries and if you need to bribe the kids to eat them, try marshmallows in place of some of the apples and bananas.
