4th of July Craft for Kids
With the 4th of July this weekend, we have so much to celebrate. We get to celebrate our independence to live, laugh, and love. The 4th of July weekend is full of parades, traditions, barbecues; and of course, fireworks. Now, let's just be sure to add crafting to that list!
We know that teaching our little ones how to cherish freedom is important. Do your kids know what the Bill of Rights are? Make July the right time to have that conversation! You can easily add this conversation right into your homeschool curriculum. Kids love hands-on learning, so we have come up with the perfect craft to help them remember all the things that make our country special.
Let freedom ring
To name a few, Americans have the freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition as well as the right to bear arms. Be sure to look up the full comprehensive list and read it with your family. To start with your 4th of July craft, shop Country Craft Creations 4th of July Collection. Once you have paper, stickers, and journaling cards, have your little ones talk about what freedoms they are most grateful for.
Easy 4th of July craft
Encourage your kids to express what freedoms they are most grateful for by scrapbooking some of their favorite pictures from a spring vacation, their homemade lemonade stand, that fishing trip they went on, or that walk around the park with their dog. Celebrating our freedoms is to celebrate the little things. Once each child has designed their page with memories they are grateful for, consider binding the journal or hanging the pages up where everyone can see.
Independence Day is also a really good time to practice gratitude for our freedom to vote, create, and to speak our truth. Country Craft Creations has everything you need for a very memorable holiday.
Before you go, be sure to read last week's article ‘How to Make a Garden Journal.’
