Patriotic Preschool Crafts

With tomorrow being Memorial Day and Summer/4th of July just around the corner I thought today would be the perfect day to share some of our past patriotic craft we've done.  These are both perfect for toddler and preschoolers but they can easily be adapted for older kids.  (originally posted on our old preschool blog).
4th of July Stars for the windows- This was really easy and something a little different. 
Cut out red, white, and blue stars. Let your little one cut out little piece of paper to use as confetti.Next cut out a large piece of clear contact paper. Place sticky side up and add your stars.
Then sprinkled the confetti over the stars and contact paper.
Add another piece of contact paper on top to seal.
We hung it in the window so the people outside also have something cute to look at. It turned out pretty cute.

Variations-Make three separate ones (one for each star instead of the three stars together) and hang them in a row OR use it as a cute place mat.

Our Flags- Very simple and both girls helped. I cut out a blue square-the girls made polka dots with a white crayon for stars. I cut out red stripes of paper. The blue and red paper were glued down. Cut off the extra red that went over the sides. They aren't very evenly spaced and I am pretty sure one has a few extra stripes but the girls really like them.

We also listened to a few patriotic songs on the computer. It was great because some of the videos had flags and they were able to point them out.
