The weather here in Phoenix lately has been downright miserable, so these days we are practically living in the pool. For this month’s issue of Raising Arizona Kids magazine we wanted to make our own pool toy with the kids.
It’s finally here — my favorite holiday! (Imagine me clapping and doing awkward cheerleading jumps here.) I’m counting down the hours until I get to eat MORE Patriotic Snack Mix (and some pie, of course) while I watch colorful fireworks burst over the lake…
Remember the free printable Statue of Liberty Crown that we shared last year? Well we’ve made it even easier for you to make Statue of Liberty Crowns for the Fourth of July this year by converting our design to a cut file for the new Cricut Explore machine.

Okay so let me show you how easy it is to make a Statue of Liberty Crown, and then you will be ready to cut one for all the kids at your July 4th barbecue!

We have teamed up with some of our blogging buddies to create and share a collection of new and free printables each month. Today we are sharing eight Patriotic #FabFreebies beginning with our Patriotic Parade Fan.
These fans are so festive and fun but they are incredibly easy to make. All you need is our free printable template, sticks and glue!
