Download and print our free Patriotic Book of American Symbols for kids to color, trace, and read this 4th of July. They will have fun learning about the symbols and landmarks of America.
I was having a hard time deciding what to teach my kids about the 4th of July because when I talk to them about fighting for independence my two kiddos don’t quite understand so I thought we would start learning about the symbols they see often around the 4th of July like the United States flag, Statue of Liberty, Liberty Bell and so forth. The printable book comes in 2 versions–One is for pre-writers who can trace the letters, and the second book is for those not ready to write. Each page in the book has a national symbol and a coloring page and it uses repetitive words to help kids learn to read as they share their book with others.

Since we just booked a trip to the Eastern United States and have planned to look at some of the historical landmarks. To make our sightseeing more interesting for my very young kids I thought we had better learn about the things we are going to see which is perfect because it coincides with the upcoming holiday. We have been writing and coloring one page out of our patriotic symbols book each day as we learn about the national symbol. My kids now know that the Statue of Liberty came from France and the United States flag originally had 13 stars.
They are looking forward to finishing their book and learning about the other symbols. We have also been making crafts which I am going to try and find time to share some with you before the 4th of July (Holidays at the beginning of the month seem to sneak up on me. Thank goodness Christmas is at the end of the month of December!) Until then you can check out our Cupcake Liner Fireworks Craft, Patriotic Suncatchers, and Star Spangled Rice Krispie Treats–yummy!
