Fourth of July Parade Stick Craft

Make the most of the holidays ahead with our great ideas for crafts to make with your kids, recipes for entertaining, fun ways to decorate, and much, much more.

Celebrate July 4th with these glittery, star-spangled batons.

What You’ll Need

8 to 10 sheets of newspaper

Transparent tape



Craft glue

Shredded crinkle paper

5-inch silver cardboard star

Star-shape foam stickers

Step 1

Tightly roll eight to 10 sheets of newspaper (roll from one corner at a diagonal) and secure it with tape. Trim to about 20 inches long.

Step 2

Tape the ribbon at one end of the stick and wrap it in a spiral to the other end. Secure it at that end with tape.

Step 3

Glue crinkle paper and a silver cardboard star onto one end of the baton; let dry flat. Decorate the cardboard star with star-shape foam stickers.
