What is a Printable?
When searching for craft ideas, we often come across "printable" links. Printables are craft templates, created by other people, that are used to simplify your own projects. A printable can be free, or at a cost. They can be used for their intended purpose, or at your own creative leisure. Below are some examples of how we have used a free Fourth of July Printable link with a creative flair.

Here are some craft Ideas using this printable
We used the printable to make spinning pinwheels, by using a push pin and a pencil, we also made stationary pinwheels and glued them onto a dried vine wreath to decorate our door. We also used the squares provided to create a banner, by cutting them out and gluing them to a piece of red ribbon.
We traced the child's hand (with fingers closed). Then offered the children red, blue, green, and black paint. We assisted them in painting their hand prints as thought they were flags. Once the paint had dried, we added a little glitter glue on the blue section to create stars.
