crafting with grandma - 4th of July Tin Can Windsocks!

Tin Can wind socksIt seems like Summer has barely begun, but the 4th of July is really just around the corner . . . just two weeks away! So, I thought I'd share a great craft with you which I found, of course, on Pinterest! These 4th of July Tin Can Windsocks are wonderful!

Just follow the link and you'll find a list of supplies and a photo tutorial which shows just how easy - and inexpensive - these windsocks are to make! Make a few with your grandchildren and decorate your house, their house, the neighbor's houses . . . surprise your neighbors by taking your grandchildren to hand them out to the neighbors as a great way to say, "Happy 4th of July!"

Be sure to talk with your grandchildren about why we celebrate the 4th of July and what it means to be "free". Share with them how freedom is a gift and a blessing from God and from those who fought for our country. Help your grandchildren make a few extra tin can windsocks to give to any families you know who have a family member who is serving in the military to thank them for their sacrifice and be sure to pray with your grandchildren for those families.
