Fourth of July Coloring Pages
The two Fourth of July coloring pages included in this packet will allow your kids to reflect on the meaning of the Fourth of July while expressing their creativity.
When your kids color the American Flag coloring page, consider discussing with them the history of the flag and the meaning behind the design. This PBS article contains many fun talking points.
The eagle coloring page provides a jumping-off point for a conversation about the role of the bald eagle as our national bird. Check out this American History for Kids article for some interesting bald eagle facts. Of course, they will hopefully also have a blast creating colorful fireworks.
Map of the United States Activity Page
How well do your kids know their state names? (How well do you for that matter?) The United States map activity page offers a geography challenge. Maybe your kids can embark on a journey of memorizing the name and location of all 50 states – or even the capital cities! This sheet can also be used as a coloring page. Maybe your kids can decorate each individual state with a different color or design.
If you need an answer key for the states, visit this page.
Design Your Own Country Activity Page
Talk to your kids about how the Fourth of July celebrates our Founding Fathers’ creation of our country. What if they created their own country? They can dive down a creative rabbit hole as they design a country from scratch.
The prompts include:
