The Fourth of July will be here before we know it, and what better way to celebrate Independence Day than with a festive and patriotic handprint craft? I also found so many cute July 4th food ideas, I had to share some of those, too.
Here are a few of my favorites (if they look familiar, some were already featured here for Memorial Day and Flag Day):

And last, what would July 4th be without the fireworks? Make 'em with handprints:

These cupcakes are made with assorted candy - jelly beans, cut licorice, swedish fish, etc. - and I love that each kid can decorate an individual fireworks display on their own cupcake. You could also use the candy to make American flag cupcakes, love this version from Sugar & Sprinkles:
Happy July Fourth!!!!
For more July Fourth ideas, check our archives. And we've got a lot of patriotic red, white and blue ideas on Pinterest, too.
Would love to hear how you'll be celebrating the Fourth of July. We'll be taking our annual beach vacation, and I'll be making my family favorite red velvet and blue velvet cake, but that's a recipe for another post...
