Fourth of July DIY

Supplies You will need to make the Paper Lanterns:

-Cardstock in Red, White and Blue

-A ruler

-Scissors

-Star punch or Star Stickers

-A pencil

-Glue Sticks

-Festive Ribbon

-Stapler

Step One: Fold your cardstock in Half Lengthwise.  Then take your ruler and draw lines from the fold, leaving an inch from the end of your line and the edge.  Leave about .75 inch on each side.

Step 2: Have the kids cut on the line, stopping when the line ends, not through to the edge.  (This is great cutting practice)

Step 3:  Unfold your paper and then with the folded bumps on the outside, turn inward and attach at the top and bottom.  Then staple both the top and bottom a couple of times.

Step 4: DECORATE! Add festive stickers, star cutouts, ribbon, etc.

Step 5: Using ribbon or string, hang the lanterns for festive décor either inside your home or outside.
