July 4th Party Kids’ Craft Table Ideas

bookmark craft

Your family-focused July 4th party isn’t complete without kid-friendly activities. You’ve got the games planned and have created a menu that the kiddos are sure to enjoy. Now what? A craft table is an easy way to occupy little guests. Not only will the kids stay busy, but they’ll create their own keepsakes to take home too! Check out these ideas for setting up a Fourth of July party kids’ crafting center.

Pick the Place

Choose a space that isn’t near the food (no one wants school glue in their salad) or anything that gets wet (such as the sprinkler or a water balloon game station). If possible, select an area under a shady tree. Why? The shade will keep the kids cool as they craft and shield the table from the sun.

Table Set Up

This doesn’t have to get fancy. Set up a card table, making sure that it is sturdy and level. Cover it with a piece of red, white or blue butcher paper or a patriotic-themed vinyl table cover.

Materials Choice

There are a few ways to go here. If you want easy, mess-free crafting, cut up card stock paper and craft foam with glue sticks are excellent choices (the kids can make red, white and blue bookmarks or mini flags). If it’s okay to get messy, add tempera paints, glitter and sequins so that the kids can create red, white and blue multi-media masterpieces.

Crafting Rules

Give the kids a list of rules to follow. This will help keep the crafting under control and make sure the mess doesn’t get too out-of-hand. These are specific to your party, but might include – only craft on the table, don’t draw on/paint on/glue on other kids or clean-up after yourself.
