Patriotic Crafts and Activities

Welcome! New to ABC and 123?
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.

Thank you to everyone who sent us these last minute submissions! This post literally won't have gotten done without you. We realized late last week that we'd never posted a request for them, and that the Fourth was right around the corner!

Let's start off our post devoted to patriotic and Fourth of July crafts with a BANG!

Anne at Teaching Two sent us this fireworks craft using cupcake liners.

Jedda from This Little Project has been causing some excitement around her house with these edible rocket fireworks! Be sure to see her post for the fun edible sparklers too!

We also got a yummy looking and patriotic looking snack from Amber at Everything Except the Grill, checkout her pretzel sparklers and graham crackers with froasting and sprinkles. What a sweet way to celebrate our county!

And now for some Red, White, and Blue patriotic and flag crafts!

Frequent contributor Kim from Four Crazy Kings is now also a featured writer at Grow In My Heart, a new adoption blog. See her first article to find out how to make this star mobile and patriotic clip.

Kristi at Miller Moments made this fun tear art project after reading a great book, go see her post to find out which one it was!

Crystal at The Harris Family fixed the problem of not having any patriotic decorations by making these two projects with her daughter. The window hanging sounds like a lot of fun to make!

The Masked Mommy submitted a patriotic painting project!

Susana at Our Homeschool Fun sent us these two fun flag crafts.

We love this open ended collage sent to us by Shannon at Teaching My Little Bookworm.
