Crafty 4th of July Fun + Aquafresh® Sugar Acid Protection

>> Monday, June 6, 2016

 The Aquafresh brand has compensated me in connection with the statements made in this post.

Fun fact: The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. Something about the warm weather, fireworks, picnics, and getting together with friends and family outdoors really gets me feeling happy. I also love how you can walk around my neighborhood and smell all those barbecue pits burning with deliciousness. Yeah. The 4th is all about food in my book.

Today's post is in partnership with SheKnows and Aquafresh® toothpaste. As many of you know, I've written about Aquafresh® in the past. What's good? Well, their toothpastes provide Sugar Acid Protection from active fluoride. This protection works to strengthen and shield teeth against sugar acid attacks. You know, the kind you get from everyday foods and drinks. And yes: even from our beloved holiday foods and treats.

The thing is, there are also plenty of ways to celebrate July 4th. So, today I thought I'd share a fun art project you can do with your kids to get everyone in the spirit. I used to do this simple fireworks and/or flowers painting project with my mom when I was a kid - long before I saw it pop up on Pinterest boards.


All you need:
  • Scissors
  • Used up paper towel or toilet paper roll
  • Different colors of paint (stick with red, white, and blue = super festive!)
  • Paper plates (to hold paint) 
  • Construction or other paper (Black would be great for fireworks!)
  • Glitter or glitter paint (optional) 
Ada wanted to make flowers for this post.

So, here they are!

  1. Simply squirt a bit of each type of paint onto a plate. I like to mix different colors together to get a swirl effect with flowers. Paint will likely go everywhere, so make sure you put down some type of vinyl tablecloth or even just a garbage bag.
  2. Adults: Cut the end of the paper towel or toilet paper roll in straight lines. Experiment with going thicker or thinner/longer or shorter for different fireworks or flower shapes. (This would also make a great sun stamp!) 
  3. This probably goes without saying, but you fold the cut parts out so they make a fireworks shape.
  4. Then have your child dip the new stamp you've made into the paint and go crazy!
  5. You can decorate your photo with glitter for extra dazzle.
