8. Star Spangled Slime
This is our first-ever attempt at SLIME!!! Little Brother has been begging to make some “goop” ever since he first played with it at preschool this past school year.

Once the glue has hardened, your patriotic ribbon wand is ready for some serious waving accompanied by whole-hearted belting-out singing at the top of your lungs.
10. 4th of July Yarn & Wood Star
You know I honestly and willfully tried not to do another yarn craft. I truly did. But yarn is in my crafty DNA makeup and if I can wrap something with yarn I am just gonna. And honestly, I thought this was not going to make my heart as happy as yarn usually does because I don’t typically associate yarn with summer…but THIS SO WORKS.
