Independence Day is too big a concept for most preschoolers so we celebrate the fireworks, parades, and picnics.                                                    Tape about 6 inches of yarn to the end of craft sticks.                          Kids dip the yarn into glue and drag across their black paper.                                                   Now add the glitter!
