Going for a vintage look or simply a fun project to do with your kids? Get a few bottle caps, and paint them red, white, and blue. One the paint has dried, cut a piece of cardboard into a ring and glue the caps on the cardboard. Finish it by attaching a ribbon on the top, and hang it on a door. Voilà!

Paint inexpensive terra cotta pots in a patriotic design or you can use big tomato cans and glue a flag images around them. You can find the images at your local paper store, or print a flag.  You can use them to put the day’s silverware, treats or even some flowers to decorate the table.

Healthy Flag Snacks

Decorate your table with this simple colorful snack.  Use the berries to represent the colors of the flag, blueberries for the blue color, strawberries for red and bananas for white. You can substitute the bananas for marshmallows to add a little extra sweetness.  Take a tour of your local grocery store and find all variables you can use.
