We Love Our Flag - June 14th
We love our flag. (Pretend to wave a flag as you sing.)
Red, white, and blue, (Hold up 3 fingers.)
50 stars of white (Open and shut fingers like stars.)
Thirteen stripes (March in place like soldiers.)

Flags - Teach children flag etiquette and the importance of not dragging the flag on the ground. Give children red, white, and blue paper and challenge them to design a flag.
Cupcakes - Celebrate Flag Day with flag cupcakes. Place flat bottom cones in cupcake pans. Fill half full with cake mix. Bake according to directions until lightly brown on top. Cool. Spread white icing and stick a flag toothpick in top.
Parade - Everybody loves a parade! Give each child 2 paper plates and ask them to color them with markers or crayons. Use the plates like cymbals as you march around the classroom or playground to some patriotic music.
