Patriotic Shaker & Lady Liberty Crown Craft

(This post may contain affiliate links. See my Disclosure Policy for details.)

I have to simple last-minute Patriotic crafts for the 4th of July this week.  Both of these are fun and easy things that I did with my on-hand craft supplies. They have made my kids happy this week! We made a VERY easy lady Liberty crown and also a Patriotic shaker toy.

Patriotic Crafts for kids


To make the crown, you need a large piece of craft foam. Mine was about 12 x 18 inches. Along the bottom of the longer side, leave a 2 inch strip and then draw zig-zags from that point to the top of the foam.

Make little slits along the bottom in the 2 inch section that you left.

Cut out the points and fold them over slipping the point through the slit you cut.

Our foam piece was not quite long enough to fit around my kid’s heads, so I threaded a piece of ear through the whole thing and tied it in the back to make it into a crown.

The second patriotic craft is the patriotic shaker. For the shaker, I used a mini water bottle and filled it with red, white and blue beads.

For the star topper, I cut out three stars in the three colors. We put used our Elmer’s Early Learners glue stick to glue on each star and put the straw in the center. I glued them together to make it three-sided.

I stuck the straw into the water bottle and added in some pieces of ribbon as well. Then I taped it all together with some clear packing tape.
