We’ve been so busy, I needed some quick, no-prep needed activities for Independence Day. This is one that I came up with…
I sent J through the house on a toy hunt. He had to find
as many red and blue toys as possible. Actually I tried adding white too, but we just didn’t have enough white toys. He LOVED this mission. I was shocked at how long he stuck to it and how many toys he came up with.
The next step was to create our US Flag. I was going to have him create it on the kitchen floor. But since we didn’t have enough white toys, I improvised and pulled out a white storage lid instead.
I set out a picture of the US Flag and told him we were going to use the toys to create our own flag. The only part he needed me for was help with making the blue shaped like a square.
He was so proud of the final result and insisted we keep it out for dad to see.
