Today we went to our local library and they had a special time talking about our country and read books about America. After the story time, some singing of patriotic songs and a puppet story we did a cute craft. Usually we leave and head out because it is crazy and my younger guy could care less but today we stayed and I am glad we did.
What you will need:
piece of card board as big as you want the wreath to be
red, white & blue paper
anything else red, white & blue you want to put on the wreath
They had everything all pre-cut and I didn’t take pictures as we went but you can figure out how easy it is from the picture.
Cut out a piece of cardboard in a circle with a hole in the middle the size you want your wreath to be. You can see it here on the back of it.
Cut the pieces of paper into the shape of a star enough to cover the front of your cardboard the way you want it to look.
After you have the pieces cut start glueing them on the front. We used a glue stick and just stuck the pieces on top of the cardboard. It seemed to work well. After we did that they had some start garland “stuff” that we wrapped around it and then tied a bow on top and this can also be used to hang it up!
Thought ours turned out cute. You can tell which one I helped with. My 5 year old did a great job on his though.
We hung them on our front door, perfect fun little craft for the 4th of July.
Do you have a fun patriotic craft you do with your little ones?
