Easy Kids Firework Art

If you’re looking for an easy summer craft idea to celebrate the 4th of July, check out this cute method to paint fireworks using drinking straws! Perfect for the kiddos, you probably already have all the supplies needed to make an inspiring masterpiece at home.

Supplies Needed:

Red and Blue Craft Paint
Plastic Bendy Drinking Straws (or alternatively Pipe Cleaners)
White Paper

Make fireworks using Straws

Directions: Tape together about six drinking straws with the bendy ends facing outward. Dip the bendy ends in paint and “stamp” down on paper. You may have to use your other hand to push each straw all the way down. Do this multiple times overlapping fireworks on the paper. Then do the same process while switching colors and going over the same fireworks you stamped with the first color. Set aside and let paint dry.

If you don’t have paint on hand, consider “stamping” white craft glue instead and then fill in with different colors of glitter.

4th of July Craft

My daughter loved this craft idea so much that we ended up painting fireworks using acrylic paint on a plain cotton canvas bag. It turned out to be a cute and colorful way to embellish a bag that she can use for summer camp or a trip to the library!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
