Decorate your home for Independence Day with our red, white, and blue mobile. If you like this craft, you’ll also like our Popsicle Flags -- another great patriotic craft.

What You’ll Need:
*White heavyweight paper or white paper plate
*Markers: red & blue
*Pencil
*Yarn
*Hole punch
*Scissors
*Star stickers, optional

Preparation:
*Did you know? Independence Day is America’s birthday! Until 1776, we were part of Great Britain, but after winning the Revolutionary War, we became the United States of America.

Activity:
*Draw a patriotic design, such as a flag, or just red, white, and blue stripes on your paper or plate. Add star stickers.
*Use a pencil to make a spiral: start from the center of the paper or plate and draw in a continuous line creating a spiral. Cut along the line, starting outside and working in.
*Punch a hole in the top and add yarn for hanging.
*Send us a picture of your kids and their July 4th Mobiles we may post it to our site! info@mycalendarmaker.com.
