Patriotic Activities for Kids

Patriotic activities for kids are a great way to teach the children about their country, as well as keep them entertained while you are preparing for your festivities.

Whether it is Canada Day or Independence Day, there is a definite need to celebrate! It's our countries birthday!

We have some free printables all themed to either Canada or the US.

We also have some great suggestions for other fun printables you can purchase at GREAT prices.

Our Critters have also come up with an idea or two of games the kids can play at the patriotic celebrations. 

We also just love candy of all sorts, so we have thought up some great ideas for some displays you can put out to decorate for your party.

A Fun Word Match Game from our Critters

Another of our great patriotic activities for kids is our US word match. The objective is to match each state with its corresponding capital. 

Some of the Critters did pretty well on this activity. I did not fair so well, being Canadian. I give kudos to my American neighbours, I only have to memorize a handful of provinces and capitals.
