I am so excited for this 4th of July holiday! My husband has off, my boys are no longer scared of fireworks, and my oldest is obsessed with all things Revolutionary War.
He had our whole family chanting “Declaration of Independence!” the other day. It was adorable!
I love that he is starting to understand the significance of our traditional celebrations!
I wanted to do a patriotic craft that both my preschooler and toddler could participate in, while practicing some pre-writing skills. Hence this 4th of July flag craft with dot markers!
If you’re child is young, draw a basic American flag outline.
Instruct them to put the blue dot marker in the top left square. Then have them use the red marker to mark along the line, going left to right. My preschooler was able to follow those instructions.
My toddler decided to be a free thinker.
And then I made one so Pinterest wouldn’t think we’re out of our minds!
It’s easy, but as Loopy said, “This is way funner than I thought it would be!”
