Clear baby oil, white paint, food coloring and alka seltzer. My kids loved this one, I let them add all of the ingredients and they were very pleased at the dramatic results.

Make America’s birthday hats! With glue and anything red white and blue. Blank hats available on Amazon.

Make your own bomb pop! Blueberry or blue jello, white grape juice and cherry juice. Freeze each layer in order Starting with blue freeze at least three hours in between colors for best result.

Shaving cream fireworks sensory activity. I suggest using Aveeno Unscented shaving cream as it is much less toxic than scented shaving cream. For details on how to set up this activity go to:
