Can you believe it’s already June? In the United States, we celebrate our Independence Day on July 4th and it’s coming up in just a few short weeks. So this week I’m sharing some new printables to help you get ready and celebrate this holiday!
Growing up, the 4th of July was one of my favorite holidays. It was a holiday our family gathered together, set off fireworks, played card games and then went to stake out our “claim” in a parking lot to watch one of the BIG fireworks shows in our area. There we would bring our coolers with drinks and food and have a fun evening picnic of sorts while playing more cards, lighting sparklers as the sun went down and then sat in awe as we watched the night sky light up.
Those are some great memories and while I miss them, I am so thrilled to start new traditions with my own children and enjoy it with them. Here are some fun placemats you can use at family gatherings, church functions or just because! I recommend printing these on cardstock for more durability OR laminate them for multiple uses!!
Included in this set:
- 4 activity-filled placemats
- 2 coloring pages
- 2 activity pages
