We usually go camping for the Fourth of July holiday. Last year we spent it in Traverse City, Michigan. This year, however, we are at home because my doctor doesn’t want me to run into any complications traveling. What’s a mama to do? Of course, find some Fourth of July projects for the kiddos to keep them busy and celebrate the holiday.
Today, Alanna from The Craft Nest is walking us through a project to make Patriotic Candy Catchers. These will come in handy if we head out to any local parades, or even just for my girls to play some form of catch. We need to work those motor skills anyway we can!
Here’s a little bit about Alanna before you jump over there and go to town on her crafts and projects.
Alanna was a Design Manager in the scrapbooking industry until the birth of her first child. She then turned freelance designer, crafter and stay-at-home mom. Her website features family and kids crafts, recipes, handmade gift ideas and advent activities.
Tweet me some pictures of your finished projects and I’ll post them for everyone to see! You can get all the information on building a candy catcher from Alanna’s website, The Craft Nest.
Don’t forget to continue to check The Craft Nest through August to see what other fun projects will be featured.
