Make a Star Spangled Wand
Cut three stars out of foam. The largest is red, the middle sized is white, and the smallest is blue. You can do it the opposite way as well, as long as you follow the red, white, and blue pattern. Place a cookie sheet or newspaper and put it under your child from here until the end of the craft!
Completely glitter the blue star with blue glitter. It is easiest to pour some glue in to a bowl and the the child paint the glue on the the star.
Glue the white star to the red star.
Put glue on the red part of the star that is showing. Leave the white star alone.
Allow to dry.
Glue the blue star on top of the already adhered red and white star
Hot Glue (for best results) a wooden dowel to the back of the big glitter star.
Glue ribbon to the back.
Grant some magic wishes for a fabulous Fourth!
