1. 4th of July Rag Flag -
Make a Rag Flag craft and decorate for 4th of July! Let your kid make their own flag, or have the whole family make a larger one together.

Hide small patriotic items (A coin with Thomas Jefferson’s head, a small American flag, a toy eagle, something red, the number 4 etc.) around the house and have the kids find each object.
