4th of July Celebration

Wednesday, July 3

Let freedom ring! Pretend City is open a FULL DAY to celebrate Independence Day and you’re invited! Stop by the museum for some patriotic fun where your child can partake in our parade through the museum, an Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty fashion show, a star-spangled science lesson, and a sparkling craft to take home.

Purpose Behind the Play:  Language and literacy development, physical development, 

Smart Art: Sparkling Fireworks > Fireworks are a symbol of Independence Day. Your children will let their colors burst in our Art Studio by creating their own “fireworks”.
Sensational Story Time (11:30 am): The Night Before the Fourth of July > ‘Twas the night before July 4th and all across the USA, Americans were gearing up for Independence Day. Gather with us as we delight in this fun rhyming story then create our own little piece of Fourth of July glory!  
Holiday History (3:00 pm): In celebration of America’s Birthday we will be reading a short story then talk about what it means to have freedom. We’ll then create a community chain sharing our appreciation and pride for our country.   
Headin’ Home a Patriot Parade (4:50 pm): Stars & Stripes > Join us in Orange Plaza for this red, white, and blue parade home through our city streets! 

Grown-up TipContinually introduce new words to your child. Identifying words like red, blue, celebration, independence, patriotic and flag will give your child word association and recognition and build vocabulary.
