Are you still looking for some creative activities to do the rest of this week? Here is a list of 5 fourth of July activities for your classroom.
5 Fourth Of July Activities For Your Classroom.
Fireworks-Get white card stock paper and let the kids squeeze streams of glue all over it. Then let them sprinkle red and blue glitter on it to make their own ‘big’ firework.
Fourth of July Dance Party-Decorate your classroom with red, white and blue streamers and balloons. Have your kids dress in red, white and blue and play both patriotic and non patriotic music for them to dance to. Include songs like Yankee Doodle Dandy, This Land Is Your Land, America The Beautiful, etc as well as other fun songs like The Chicken Dance.
Fingerpaint-Get rolls of white paper and cover the tables in your classroom. Let the kids finger paint with red and blue paint. After it dries, hang it on your wall to display in your classroom. Make sure you write each child’s name near their ‘painting’ and when you are done, cut in between paintings so they can take their creations home.

Water Day Fun-If you have water day once a week, treat the kids to a red, white and blue Popsicle before you go in to change clothes. You can use the hose to wash them off before they dry off and head inside.
Fourth of July Snack-Buy cups of ready made blue jell-o and add whipped cream and a strawberry for a patriotic snack. You could also custom order a fruit pizza from your local grocery deli/bakery with just strawberries and blueberries on it. Or make parfaits with yogurt, blueberries and strawberries.
Tie Dye Shirts-Have each parent bring in a white t shirt for their child and tie dye them red and blue.
These 5 Fourth of July Activities for your classroom are bound to light your kids up like fireworks in the sky.
