In every store you go to there is red, white, and blue displays enticing you to buy all kinds of things to get in the spirit of the holiday. You could spend a fortune on these things. Or you could spend quality time with your children or the creative child in yourself and have fun making your own decorations.
Here are several websites with ideas and instructions to help you get started.
Kaboose.com has a bunch of crafts and other activities.
Disney Family Fun site has plenty of ideas.
HP Creative Studio has projects you can print on your printer.
I will check out more sites and ideas and post them here in the next few days. If you have any fun, inexpensive, and easy projects please let me know so I can share them with all my readers. Thanks.
