Day 177: Hats Off for the Fourth of July!

Celebrate the 4th of July with your preschoolers.  The following information was written and compiled by Fran Wisniewski.

Remember, only do these learning activities if they are enjoyable for you and your child. Do not treat this as a “must do” lesson. It’s simply a fun activity that provides an opportunity to learn, while building “readiness skills” for school or homeschool success.

~ Hats Off for the Fourth of July! ~

Does your little one love parades? “Hats Off For the Fourth of July” written by Harriet Ziefert, will take you through one town’s grand Fourth of July parade! Who will be in the parade? What will they do? When do the hats come off? What will happen when the parade is over? I hope you’ll read this fun book and find out!

Before reading, “Hats Off For the Fourth of July,” have your little one make a hat so that they can take it off at just the right time during the story!

It’s easier to see how each fold is made then it is to explain, so please visit the following website for a diagram on how to make a, “Patriotic Newspaper Hat.” Your little one can make this hat with a little help from an adult or older child.

Once your child has finished making their hat, let them decorate it any way they want. Don’t forget the craft feathers!

Your child can wear his or her hat to a local 4th of July parade. Find a directory of Independence Day parades and firework displays here.

You can see a photo slideshow of America’s Independence Day Parade that takes place annually in our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.
