Hailey has been busy learning about the 4th of July… here is another craft she did.
Paint 5 popsicle sticks red and paint 4 popsicle sticks white.
Cut a piece of blue construction paper and add stars to it. Hailey made sure that she had exactly 50 stars.
Glue the red and white popsicle sticks onto 2 popsicle sticks.

We talked about what the flag represents and what it means when we say the Pledge of Allegiance.
Here is a simple craft that can be used for pretty much any age. If the child is younger you can write down what he/she dictates.
Hailey has been learning about the 4th of July and why we celebrate it, so we talked about why we are proud to be Americans and what our freedom means.
Hailey drew a picture of herself and colored a patriotic hat. She wrote “I’m proud to be an American because I can have fun with my family.”
Continuing with our 4th of July activities, Hailey made a headband.
First I printed 2 maps of the US. Then I cut out a star shape from card stock.
Hailey put the card stock shaped star onto the map and painted red around the outside of the star. She made 4 stars.
Once the stars were dry she cut them out.
Then she glued the stars onto blue construction paper and we stapled it to make a headband.

Hailey has been learning about the 4th of July and what the celebration is all about. Today she made some fireworks.
First we folded a piece of construction paper in half.
Then she used a leaf and stamped red, white and blue paint onto half of the paper.
Then she folded the other half over to make a impression of the paint and opened it up. Lastly, she sprinkled it with a little glitter.
