    TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS

  • Some foam comes in stick on sheets and items like stars. The stick on stars we used made it easy to organize the activity and easy for the girls to stick on.

  • Add a photo to the center star to personalize.
  • Make 3 different pictures, rotating the colors and frame to make a series to hang.
  • EDUCATIONAL NOTE

  • In the United States Independence Day, often called the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Many people celebrate Independence Day by sending off fireworks, attending parades, having barbecues or holding picnics.

  • A great way to introduce an activity is to find a book about the topic.
