Patriotic Ideas Roundup

It's that time of year, time to gather fun, patriotic ideas to get ready to celebrate our nation's birthday. Here are some of the fun things I have posted in the past with the links to the original posts (where applicable).

Patriotic Muffin Tins:

Yummy Desserts:

Red, White and Blue Jello

Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches on a Stick

Patriotic Strawberries

Patriotic Berries

Simple Craft ideas:

American Flags: We glued blue and red construction paper onto white construction paper and made white fingerprint stars.

Red, white and blue collage- I found some star outlines online and printed them out in various sizes on red, white and blue paper, along with some fireworks.  The girls glued them to black paper.

The children made these paper towel roll fireworks at Story Hour last year. The librarian wasn't sure where she found the idea. But it again is simple to put together.


Montessori fine motor activity 

And here is a link to my Patriotic Pinterest Board for many, many ideas.

  1. These craft ideas are great - will have to try the firework one with the toilet paper roll :)

  2. I love your muffin tin ideas. I really have to try these with my daughter. She is so picky but I think she would absolutely love doing this. You have lots of great food ideas. The crafts look fun as well. I have been wanting to work on some patriotic crafts with the kids as it is coming up fast.
