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.
Feel free to print and distribute these to your kids, students, daycare, etc as long as all site information and logos are kept on the material.
With patriotic activities for kids you will not only have some fun, you can also learn about the different states, provinces and the capitals of each.
Here is a word search for Canada and one for the United States:
These word searches will pop up in a new window. They come in PDF for and are very easy to print.
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.
Country Cups: Decorate the tables with hand painted cups with your flag on them.
Patriotic Cup: Another cute craft with a cup, this one is just a fun decoration for the big day!
