3 Patriotic Crafts for kids!

Hi friends! I hope you are having a great 4th of July! Here are a few crafts my daughters came up with to help celebrate the 4th of July! If you enjoy these crafts you can check out their new YouTube channel called CraftyTwins with craft projects for kids designed by kids. They are doing everything from developing the projects to shooting/editing the videos. I wonder how long before I can hire them to edit my videos…. 🙂

First up is Lila with a festive 4th of July Hat, feel free to change-up the colors for whatever you need!

And Maizy’s rainbow-colored 4th of July card with lots of cool crafting tips!

And grab the glue gun for Lila’s 4th of July Flag! Warning, there is a lot of hot glue in this one so kids, get your parent’s help with this one (don’t burn your hands off!)

I am so glad my girls love to craft, it is a wonderful hobby that’s not only fun, but builds self-esteem and develops both sides of the brain. If you are afraid of your kids using up all of your supplies collect a box of items you don’t mind them using up and put it in an accessible spot for them. I hope you have a fun and safe 4th of July and as always happy crafting!

  1. Those videos are so cute. I watched the videos first got out the supplies needed and my grand children followed along with your girls. As soon as I get a camera I will post the pictures. God bless your beautiful gifted family…had so much FUN 🙂


  2. Love the videos. Great job young ladies !!!


  3. I just cannot imagine how you will get THREE videotaping crafters in one craft area!! Might need a second (or third!) calendar just to make sure YOU have time to do your tutorials too! Seriously, might you need to ask your hubby to downsize his area?!?! What a blast you guys must have. Reminds me of a neighbor I used to have when I was in High School. She had pre-schoolers, but used to let us teenagers do all kinds of crafty stuff in her basement. All we had to do was leave it clean! One project involved soda bottles, plaster of paris, and balloons! Still remember that day 50 years later! Good job, girls!


  4. Watch out Lindsay the CraftyTwins are good. I can see they have learnt from the best. You must be so proud. Happy 4th of July from the UK. I am watching the England Womens “soccer” team play Germany. The Men never do well against them so finger’s crossed. They play for 3rd place in the world cup. Melanie x


  5. Hi Lindsay, Maizy and Lila 🙂

    Lindsay, you and your husband are so blessed to have wonderful children.
