You will need:
Peanut butter, jelly, or other favorite sandwich filling
Clear plastic wrap
Yarn or ribbon
Cut the crusts off the bread. Flatten the bread with a rolling pin. (The children just like to "smush" it with their hand.) Spread on your sandwich filling. Roll up tightly like a jelly roll. Wrap in a piece of plastic wrap. Twist the ends of the plastic wrap and tie with a piece of ribbon. It will look like a firecracker!
Here's the fire cracker sandwich K.J. made for lunch.
Everybody loves a parade! Decorate riding toys and wagons with tissue paper, signs, and streamers. Play some good marching music and off you go!
Fourth of July Fence Art
Give children red, white, and blue plastic cups. They can insert the cups in a chain link fence to make designs, patterns, or words.
