Patriotic Crafts for Kids

Kids just love to make holiday decorations, and they will be delighted to create these patriotic crafts designed for kids.

When my kids were younger, we would decorate the house for each and every holiday. Being a teacher, I went crazy with decorations!

Preschool 4th of July crafts were a perfect place to begin making holiday decorations with them.  I couldn’t wait until they were old enough to start crafting!  

The holiday boxes still have their sweet crafts in them, and yes, I still put them up even though one has long since graduated from college and one is in high school!

As you browse our page, you will find the perfect patriotic crafts for kids!

Your little ones will love these patriotic kids’ crafts!  We found the perfect 4th of July or Memorial Day crafts for kids.

Preschool 4th Of July Crafts

Let’s begin with popsicle stick crafts. Popsicle sticks are so versatile, not to mention cheap, and just perfect for kids’ crafts.

It’s so fun to do seasonal and themed crafts, and the preschool 4th of July crafts made with the popsicle sticks are simple.  

You’ll want to proudly display the American flag craft, and the craft stick flag is one your kiddos will want to wave as the parade passes by!

Little ones (and bigger kids too) will love the patriotic suncatcher craft.  I’ve made a similar one in the fall with leaves we’ve collected on a fall walk.  The possibilities are endless with this one!

Patriotic Crafts for Kids of All Ages

Kids love kites and windsocks, and the patriotic windsock is perfect for waving in the wind or tying up outside to let the wind catch it. Speaking of wind, we have a great page with tutorials to create many different types of kites.

It would work as a patriotic preschool 4th of July craft with some help, but it is much easier for older kids to do on their own.

Perler beads are always fun for the kiddos, so please be sure not to miss the drink covers as a great patriotic craft for kids. They will need your help with the iron, but it will occupy them for quite a long time as they create their designs.

The American Eagle crafts on this page range from simple to more complex, but all are very fun, and the end products are so cute!

Of course, there are many more patriotic crafts for kids, just right for 4th of July and Memorial Day craft projects.

Check out the many patriotic crafts for kids below!  And don't forget to take a look at our Patriotic Decorations page!
