A fun 4th of July game for your party. Pick a panel of judges (the oldest members of the family are the obvious picks) and have them become the official judges for a chalk contest. Break your guests into two teams (or more, depending on how many people are at the party) and give them each one or two containers of sidewalk chalk. Tell them to create a sidewalk picture that shows something patriotic, and tell them the flag must be included in the picture.

Give them a time limit (depending on the group, time limits might range from 10-45 minutes) and then have the judges declare a winner after they have carefully examined everyones' work of art.

You could have art-themed prizes for the winners.

COOL SITE OF THE MONTH - MIND LAB

A really great interactive exploration of seeing and perception using well-known optical illusions. Folks familiar with the Exploratorium exhibitions Seeing and Mind will note the similarities.

USE THESE PATRIOTIC TREAT HOLDERS TO ADD TO YOUR 4TH OF JULY PARTY

.

UNCLE SAM HAT
TREAT HOLDERS

THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

Styrofoam cup 
Red and blue felt 
Red paint 
Paintbrush 
Silver chenille stem 
Scissors 
White craft glue 
Black marker

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

Place cup, open end down, on top of the red felt and trace with a marker. Cut around the traced circle leaving a border around it. Fold the circle and cut a slit in the center of the circle to allow your scissors to get in. Cut out the inside circle, leaving about a border around the inside of the trace line. Set felt circle aside. 

Paint red stripes all the way around the outside of the cup, stripes should run up and down. Let dry completely. Cut a strip of blue felt about 1.5 wide. It should be long enough to wrap around the brim of the cup. Glue felt strip around the outside of the top of the cup. Lay red felt circle on to work surface, black trace line should be facing up. Line the lip of the cup with white glue and press down onto black trace line. Let dry. 

Turn cup over and place on work surface. Use silver chenille to bend into star shapes, trim where needed. Glue onto the blue hat band. 
When everything is dry, fill with treats.

AUNTIE MARGARET SEZ:
To make our treat cups sturdier, especially if using outside, glue a heavy washer to the bottom of the cup.
