I love the easy crafts that provide chilcdren with the opportunity to learn and be true to their own creativity. These Free Printables I made up are perfect for family time together and for a classroom activity. You can modify it for kids as young as three and as old as you have kids that would love to participate. I think that the outcomes are super fun and perfect for decorating the fridge for Memorial, 4th of July and any other patriotic holiday. It is also a fun activity do do with your child to spend quality time together in 30 minutes or less! Here is how to make this free printable easy kid’s craft to celebrate america.
What you will need:
- free printables (ss many of them as you want printed out)
- scissors (appropriate of the age group doing the activity)
- glue (glue sticks work best in my opinion)
- paper to glue the shapes to (black and white both work well)
- crayons to decorate and write on the papers (optional)
How to make the craft:
1.) Have kids help cut out the shapes from the paper. For younger children, you can help cut the pieces out for them.
2.) Have children arrange the shapes in various ways on their papers. (You can talk about everything from the designs on the American flag to terms like symmetry. You can talk about the names of the shapes and colors too.)
3.) Have children glue their pieces down to save their design.
4.) Optional: Give children crayons and a list of patriotic words to choose from to practice writing on their papers, or on the backs of their papers. They should include their names as well.
You are done!
TIP: You can use this a a fun activity to entertain children at summer get together’s and play dates.
