Festive Fourth of July Napkin Rings – A Kids Creation

Festive Fourth of July Napkin Rings

I love when a kids craft is fun, easy, and PRACTICAL.  All the crafts our boys create I truly adore no matter what, but if I can use it over and over again, I’m thrilled!  Recently, the boys and I were getting excited for upcoming Fourth of July festivities and had fun painting napkin rings in the colors of red, white, and blue.  Fun splashes of these colors on the rings can really help to bring out more of a patriotic feel to a table setting.  It was also a nice summer activity that did not take a lot of time to put together and finish.

Here’s what we did….

Supplies

Napkin rings  - we chose woven ones due to the texture –  and paint would absorb well to it!

Acrylic paints – red, white, and blue

Paint brushes
