Salt Fireworks & Lady Liberty

It sure has been a fun week of 4th of July crafts! My little guy has loved it! For this last project we used several different materials to create it.
SUPPLIES:
watercolor paper
green watercolor paint
paint brush
black card stock
pencil
Statue of Liberty template
Exacto knife
white glue
salt
red and blue food coloring with a little water added to both
DIRECTIONS:
STEP ONE I printed out the Statue of Liberty template here.  I laid the template over the black card stock and used an Exacto knife to cut it out.
