Crafting With Kids: Patriotic Crafts

Happy Friday my friends! Are you excited about the long weekend? I know I am! We don’t have any set plans but we are considering driving to Reno, Nevada to visit family. If we decide to stay home we’ll probably have a relaxing weekend and backyard BBQ to celebrate Memorial Day. In case you’re looking for a few patriotic crafts and treats to make with the kids this weekend here are a few I shared last year.

 Patriotic Paper Chain and Star Banner


Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back tomorrow with a cute gift idea and an update on my photography class.
Linking up to these parties, TCB
