Preschool Corner: 4th of July Style

Since I have done little {if anything} over the past few years to celebrate the 4th of July with the kids, THIS was apparently my week to shove holiday activities to the front and make up for years gone by.

We picked up a book by Sheri Dean called Fourth of July {Our Country’s Holidays}, a book from the Weekly Reader Early Learning Library. It was simple enough for Zachary to follow and explained how Independence Day came to be and the different ways Americans celebrate the holiday.

Other activities from this week:

~ We worked on learning the Pledge of Allegiance

~ We made some fun hats and sparklers to wear at the parade on Saturday

~ Used cookie cutters and paint to make star prints

~ Made ‘flower fireworks‘ to hang from our dining room light using markers, coffee filters, pipe cleaners, and some water. These turned out so neat and are basically tye-dyeish. CUTE!

~ Tried to draw Uncle Sam….but Zachary got a little distracted and just drew a boy. :)

If you didn’t happen to catch my post with Fourth of July resources, there are some great links for Independence Day activities for your kids. :)

We’re still working on our “School’s Out Challenge” which is going GREAT with all the kids, but Zachary has worked his way through about 2/3 of the chart so far!! Yeah for incentives!!
