What Our Subscribers Say:

"I just wanted to let you know that this is one of the best sites that I have found! I am a teacher in a multi-needs classroom and use the activities on the KidsSoup resource library site for many of my units. There is something for everyone, of every skill level, and the activites are easily adaptable for each skill level as well. I love the colourful printables and always laminate them for future use. I have recommended this site to many of my other teacher friends, and have received many compliments on the art activities that we have done from the KidsSoup site. Standing ovation kidssoup.com! I am excited for upcoming topics!"

Proper Display of the American Flag

  • The flag should be displayed from sunrise to sunset. If the flag is displayed at night, it should be illuminated.
  • Never allow the flag to touch the ground or the floor.
  • The flag should be raised quickly.
  • To store the flag, it should be folded neatly and ceremoniously.
  • The flag should be cleaned and repaired when necessary.
  • When a flag is so worn that it doesn't look presentable anymore, it should be destroyed by burning in a dignified manner.
  • The flag is flown at half-staff to show respect for someone who has died.


4th of July Kids Activities

Fold a Flag
Take a flag and teach children the correct way to fold and store a flag.

Flag Puzzle
Give children a picture of an American flag and cut apart. Have children put the flag back together.

Firework Artwork
Every 4th of July celebration needs a fireworks. Have children drop different colored paint splats on black craft paper. Use a craft stick or the back of a brush to swirl or burst the paint out from the middle. Overlap the different colors and let dry. When dry, add glue to the firework designs. Next sprinkle glitter onto the wet glue to finish your very own fireworks.
