Even though we are not in the US, all the red and blue I see lately on social media in preparation of the 4th of July celebrations, inspired this straws and pipecleaners fireworks wand!
One can change up the colours to fit any “theme”. For this craft we used red and blue straws and white pipecleaners(silver would be better, but I did not have any on hand). Bend the three pipecleaners into the “fireworks” star, as seen in the photo below:
Threading the cut straws onto the pipecleaners is good for developing fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.
And a fun activity too, perfect for a last minute 4th of July activity or any other occasion.
Happy 4th of July to all our American readers!
