Celebrating America {with Lauren from Mrs. Thompson's Treasures}

Our first three children were born overseas and lived abroad for the first few years of their lives. I appreciate that they are able to experience different cultures of the world, but there is no place like home! I love that we have many holidays around the year to celebrate our wonderful country. It gives us so many chances to teach our kids about America and the men and women who make it great!

I love this cute and simple craft using construction paper, q-tips, and white paint.

Another fun activity to do with your students is to use strawberries, blueberries, and marshmallows to make patriotic kabobs! This is great for fine motor skills practice and patterns! And it makes a tasty snack too :-)

I also love to teach kids about the important symbols of the United States. I created this fun and FREE emergent reader that you can use to introduce your students to some of these symbols!

For older kids, here is a fun Flag Mystery Picture Graph (also FREE)! You can pair this activity with a writing prompt about Memorial Day or 4th of July.
