Looking for the perfect 4th of July activities for kids? Craving some indoor fun that’s simple, engaging, and, dare I say, radiant? Well, you’re in the right place!

We all know the charm that the 4th of July brings. It’s a day filled with fireworks, parades, and those matching family outfits we can’t resist! But amidst all that outdoor excitement, it’s sometimes nice to have a quieter, indoor activity that still brims with patriotic spirit.

Let me introduce my Star and Sparkle Suncatcher Printables.

If you’re wondering, “Suncatchers? What’s that?”, here’s a quick rundown: Suncatchers are pieces made from light-catching materials that reflect sunlight in beautiful, radiant ways. They’re like indoor rainbows that spread light and joy across your rooms.

These Star and Sparkle Suncatcher Printables are designed to bring this magic right into your living room. They’re straightforward, educationally enriching, and leave you with gorgeous 4th of July decor that your child can proudly show off.

Now, let’s dive into how you and your little one can create these suncatchers:

Materials Needed:

  1. Star and Sparkle Suncatcher Printables
  2. Scissors
  3. Clear contact paper
  4. Tissue paper in various colors (but don’t forget the red, white, and blue!)


  • Step 1: Start by cutting out the Star and Sparkle shapes from the printables.
  • Step 2: Place the outline of each shape on the sticky side of the contact paper.
  • Step 3: Encourage your child to fill in the shapes with pieces of tissue paper. They can mix and match colors or stick to a patriotic color scheme – there’s no wrong way to do it!
  • Step 4: Once the shape is covered in tissue paper, cover it with another piece of contact paper, sticky side down.
  • Step 5: Cut out the suncatcher, leaving a small border of contact paper around the edges to keep it sealed.
  • Step 6: Hang your child’s creation in a sunny window and watch the sunrays dance through the tissue paper.

And there you have it, a beautiful suncatcher made with love and a touch of patriotic spirit.

So, parents, are you ready to add a dose of indoor sparkle to your 4th of July celebration?

Let’s transform those sunbeams into a spectacular show of colors and shine.

This 4th of July, let’s make magic together, one suncatcher at a time!
