Here’s what you will need:

  • White paper gift bag – large enough to fit your head!
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Paint
  • Star stickers
  • Ribbon

Here’s what you will do:

  1. To make one, first remove the handles from a white paper gift bag large enough to fit your head (we used 10-inch-tall bags). Use a pencil and a ruler to mark vertical lines about 1 inch apart down all sides of the bag and across the bottom, then paint every other stripe red. (For painting, place the open bag over a small bucket or similar object.)
  2. When the paint has dried, fold over the open end of the bag a few times for a hat brim, then paint the brim blue. Allow the paint to dry.
  3. Add a few silver star stickers to the brim, and the hat is ready to wear. (If the hat is too large, wrap a ribbon around it at the base, behind the brim, and cinch it snug.)

 

If you cannot have fireworks for some reason, you can make theseĀ Fireworks in a Jar!

 

What are you doing for July 4th? Tell us in the comments section below ;)
