July 4th weekend is always filled with so many celebrations, parades, and decorations! Utilizing the long weekend, most people love to organize cookouts, watch the fireworks, and spend cherished time with family and friends. If you’re like me and you prefer to be with family and friends at home rather than go to a parade, then you know how hard it can be to find fun activities everyone will enjoy. Well, worry no more, because at cutratecrafts.com we have tons of arts and crafts items. Some always-popular ideas are coloring books and DIY kits, that both the young and old can enjoy. I went through our collection and picked out my top 4 fun activities your friends and family will love! For a quick and awesome decoration, check out these patches. What can be more American than Captain America?!
If your family is as large as mine, and with an even bigger number of kids during family gatherings, then you’ll understand how hard it can be to get them to not cause havoc. That’s why Dover’s Coloring Box Kit-Dinosaurs is going to be very handy when your family and friends come over this July 4th weekend. Each box comes with two coloring books, crayons, and two-sided posters. When they run out of sheets, they can also color the box (if they haven’t already done so). If you’re feeling nostalgic and just want to reminiscence the good ol’ days when one of the biggest crimes you could commit was coloring out of the lines, then you’re in luck, because we also have a wide selection of coloring books for adults. Not only do they help you relax, they will also help unleash your inner creativity and make you feel like a kid again!
Who doesn’t love food? I love all kinds! Another great way to bond with your family members is through food. We have a wide variety of cookbooks for you to pick from. In particular, this Class Treats, Bake Sales and Birthday Parties cookbook contains simple recipes that were made specially to delight kids. With everything from cookies to candies and cupcakes to “dirt” cups, these recipes will keep the kids entertained. The delicious treats you make will also come in handy when you need to bribe your kids into doing chores during the weekend. If you’re looking to try out new recipes this July 4th, check out this post for more cookbooks from cutratecrafts.com.
Besides cookies, one great way to keep kids busy is through craft activities. When I was younger, I loved making dresses for my dolls! And there was nothing better than whipping out my paintbrushes and watercolor set to create abstract mosaic paintings or making stories with stick figure characters. Like most kids, I wasn’t too good at painting or drawing, but that was never the point! The freedom to create whatever I wanted was the real love behind the art. If your kids are also crafty and love doing things with their hands, then they’ll love this friendship bracelet kit. Friendship bracelets are a great way for young kids to build lifetime bonds. This kit includes everything they’ll need to make charmed and beaded bracelets, including a book to show them how to make it. What better way to express creativity and uniqueness, without spending a fortune, than DIY and homemade jewelry! Check out the kit here.
If you do choose to enjoy the nice weather, you’ll need something to keep all those delicious treats in! With so many new cookbooks and recipe ideas, you’re going to need a sturdy and practical container. JanetBaskets are known to be super versatile. And they are large enough to safely carry all your picnic goodies! Best part is, when you’re done picnicking, you can use this durable basket to store your craft supplies in! It is actually the perfect case to quickly and effectively transfer whatever project you are currently working on. But what if you don’t have a need for it? Don’t worry because you can collapse it and store it away till your next outdoor event!
What is something special you do on 4th of July?
