Made from recycled magazines, this flag is a fun art activity that kids will love. Showing your patriotism is not just reserved for adults, kids love showing off their USA pride too! This is a great way to use some of those magazines and allow kids to express their creativity.
In honor of the 11 year anniversary of September 11th, now known as Patriot Day, I’m sharing this easy project with you so you can share it with your children. I remember every last detail from that day, from the whereabouts of my children to the place I was standing when I heard the news. It’s important for us to share the significance of this day with those that come after us.
This activity is simple and a great way for kids to celebrate this great country of ours.
We will never forget.
