Celebrate Independence Day ~ Create Memories
How does your family celebrate Independence Day? Do you attend special community events? Does your family participate in marathons, and walk-a-thons, or enjoy being outside with nature?
Whatever your family’s decision, the important outcome will be precious, priceless family memories.
Celebrate Independence Day ~ Crafts
How will you celebrate? Creating crafts that focus on three colors – red, white, and blue – and include embellishments like glitter and stars will certainly be perfect decorations for the BBQ and the spirit wear clothing that can be created.
This year I created a wreath for the front door and some bows for
the mantel and side table.
Celebrate Independence Day ~ Learning
Celebrating Independence Day with some learning is never the wrong pathway in my Independence Day adventures. Reading some fabulous books that discuss the events that led up to why we celebrate Independence Day and the events that followed are perfect opportunities to read, learn, and write. Let your kiddos’ age and interest dictate what learning takes place.
Some of my favorite titles for younger kiddos
are listed below.
