Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Birthday 'Merica! 

I saw these hand print table pieces and used the idea to make a flag craft. Work on colors, following directions, concepts (long/short) and action words while you make this adorable flag!

They were adorable!

We also made some fireworks! Megan had the idea of making fireworks and Emily cut straws at the end. We dipped into glue and made fireworks on paper. Lots of glitter was added!

To make the straws, just take scissors and cute the straw about 2 or 3 inches high into 6 different pieces. The straw should look kind of like a flower at the end when you're done cutting.

Of course we did lots of other learning with my freebie downloads too! Did you do anything fun to celebrate American's birthday this week?
