Patriotic Crafts

The girlies spent a LONG time with their lacing. They love the colorful wooden blocks, but were happy to make something they could take home. We talked a little bit about patterns, but they couldn't be bothered with planning ahead.

We finally updated the banner wall. With the kids' help we made a patriotic theme bunting. The cricut cut out millions of shapes and sized stars- the children glued, colored and glittered their triangles.

I used a paint by letter system for the wooden craft flag. They each got a set of wooden craft sticks labeled with a w, r or b and took turns with the paints (old applesauce containers) also labeled r, b, or w. They did a great job.
