List of Patriotic American Songs (And YouTube Video Links)

Patriotic Song List stickerA friend of mine plays patriotic songs in her classroom all year long. After all, appreciation for your country shouldn’t just happen on holidays. Whether it’s during clean up time, line up time or as a reward, her kids LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing these songs! Most of the kids have even learned the words too! How great would it be if the rising generation could regain the fire of patriotism of the past?!

Here’s her list of songs/video links to help get you started:

Veteran’s Day Craft for kids

I saw this picture on Pinterest (follow me!) and I knew I had to share it! It’s a paper soldier in a camo uniform. You can make the camo part by sponge painting with brown and green paint, or by gluing brown and green squares of tissue paper to the outfit. Such a cute Veteran’s Day craft for kids! Heart!
