Craft Stick Catapult - I made 4 of these in 5 minutes and they work great! You need craft sticks, 4 rubber bands, hot glue or tape, and a bottle cap (I cut apart an egg carton because I didn't have any bottle caps).
Give markers, colored pencils, and crayons a travel-friendly container (not like those cardboard boxes that tear and fall apart). The bottle exterior gives it structure, while colorful zippers makes it sealable. Get the tutorial at Make It
Fourth of July Firework Salt Painting - Busy Mommy Media _ This is such a cool art project for kids! It looks so neat when it is done. I love that it uses stuff I already have on hand. This would be awesome for a rainy day activity!
