Double Sided Star Wand 4th of July Kids Craft

I’m surprised I never burned anyone with a sparkler when I was a kid.

The most memorable Fourth of July cookout that I remember from my childhood was on my aunt’s farm. The specifics are fuzzy, but I remember running through the grass. Spinning round and round with my arms widespread until I tumbled to the ground, the dizziness making the world swirl around me.

Looking for red, white, and blue kids crafts? This double sided star wand works as a patriotic craft for the Fourth of July or Memorial Day. Help the kids make one of these to take along for the parade!

There were never a whole lot of kids because I didn’t have many cousins. It was always hot, so the sprinkler would be out for us to run through.

What I remember most of all were the sprinklers. I liked how pretty fireworks were in the sky, but I didn’t like being startled by the pops, bangs, and sizzles. Someone in our family usually had a bunch of sparklers, waiting until dusk to light them up for us. They were pretty and quiet. Still, I’m not sure I should have been running, jumping, and spinning around with them.

My kids are all about wands (and light sabers). They want to point with it, dance with it, and more. I loved my sparkler wand, but it never lasted long before burning to ash.

My kids haven’t played with sparklers yet. I know overall they are tame, but I don’t think it’s a good idea when they run around with wild abandon and aren’t as aware of their surroundings as I wold like. We love that this Fourth of July star wand offers safer imaginative play.
