Flip Flop Freedom
There is nothing more fun than flip flops in the summer. And you and your class can decorate your own in celebration of July 4th or just summer fun! You can even give them away as a mission project.
All you need is a pair of flip flops for each child, Old Navy and Wal-mart both carry some for about a dollar and then some fun items to decorate them with. We used cut ribbons, (about 5-6 in) and tied with a double knot. Trim to perfection. You could also use fabric strips, foam stickers, or even glue on jewels to decorate!
Want to experience the joy of popping a firecracker without the hazards of noise, fire and destruction. Try these fun confetti poppers! They also shoot marshmallows!
Small paper roll (1 per child), Balloon (1 per child), Confetti, Decorative paper/ markers, Tape (duct or electric tape), Scissors
Have each child decorate a roll. Cut a 12” balloon in half, and tie a knot in the balloon and tape the bottom of it around the outside of the roll. Place a handful of confetti inside. Pull the balloon and release to pop out the confetti!
