As Americans, many of us love to show our Red White and Blue Pride. During the summer I love to have some crafty things to do on those super hot days!! What better than some things to show our pride in the U.S.A.!!
These crafts are not just for Independence Day. Memorial Day and Flag Day are great days during the summer. Veteran’s Day is a great time during the fall.
Crafting with your children is a great way to teach new skills in a fun they don’t know they are learning environment. These crafts can be used as a way to supplement a history lesson. Why do we celebrate these days? What was the American Revolution? Are you planning a vacation to somewhere a bit more Patriotic? New York City (9/11), Washington DC, Gettysburg?
If you gather for one of these holidays with a group of families, it would be fun to have a table of supplies ready for the kids and kids at heart to make a few of these. I love to see the variations of the same idea that comes when several do the similar crafts.
