We love themed crafts throughout the year… but with the end of the school year, it was too busy this past May and July for patriotic crafts at Memorial Day or Fourth of July.
So when Melissa & Doug asked me for some patriotic craft ideas for Labor Day, I was excited to come up with a few projects for the boys.
I wanted them to become familiar with the more common symbols of our nation:
- Bald eagle
- American flag
- Statue of Liberty
- Mount Rushmore
- Liberty Bell
But I found it a challenge to find a quick list of facts about basic patriotic symbols – I must have browsed over a dozen websites trying to find little details suited for preschoolers. (Most sites either just give one small detail about one or two symbols, or extensive, historical details too advanced for younger kids).
So…. I decided to write up my own list of facts about the patriotic symbols! But why should I keep that information to myself? So I put together a FREE ebook resource for parents – Exploring Patriotic Symbols of America – to share with all my readers – you can access it by clicking the picture:
Our craft time exploring patriotic symbols of America was mixed in with these trivia facts about American symbols. The boys had a blast creating bald eagle puppets, Statue of Liberty posters, and more! Find all the patriotic symbols craft ideas on the Melissa & Doug website today!
