DIY Firework Stamps

About ryan

I'm mom to two funny, silly, noisy boys (age 3 and 6) who are mostly best friends and occasionally worst enemies. I love doing all sorts of creative activities with my kids, but I'm especially enthusiastic about kid-friendly science experiments - the messier, the better!
  1. Oh my gosh, my little boy would love those straw party rockets! This round-up has some really unique and fun ideas for kids. I love it! And I’m glad you liked the 4th of July Strawberries. They are a favorite around my house. Have a happy 4th!
