With the 4th of July fast approaching, I wanted to share a little history about our nation’s flag with the girls. The book I picked is Red, White, and Blue by John Herman (it is actually a beginning reader — Level 2). It very gently tells the story of how our nation’s flag was created and shares basic historical facts.
With our focus on the flag, I picked a simple flag craft. Tearing paper is great for strengthening little hands in preparation for writing and scissor skills.
Torn Paper Flag Craft
- Construction paper scraps
- White paper
1) Share a book about flags with your child. Give your child a blank, white sheet of paper. Show them how to tear paper and let them design a flag!!
