Happy Birthday America!  Here's a song about our flag that would be good to sing each day before saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

We Love Our Flag 

(Tune: “Farmer in the Dell”) 
We love our flag. 
We love our flag. 
We love America 
And we love our flag.

Red, white, and blue, 
Red, white, and blue, 
The colors of our country’s flag 
Are red, white, and blue.

50 stars of white 
On a field of blue 
Stand for 50 states 
Where we live, it’s true. 

Thirteen stripes 
In red and white 
Stand for the colonies 
For freedom they did fight. 

We love our flag…

Here’s the link to download the book:

Flag Etiquette
Teach children flag etiquette and the importance of not dragging the flag on the ground.  

Design a Flag
Give children a sheet of white paper and the scrap box and let them design their own flags. 

Take Me Out to the Ball Game
Take me out to the ball game. (Hand in fist as if cheering.)
Take me out to the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts  (Hold up one palm and then other.)
and Cracker Jacks.
I don’t care if we never get back,  (Shake head “no.”)
For I’ll root, root, root for the home team. (Cheer with hand in the air.)
If they don’t win it’s a shame. (Open up palms and shake head.)
For it’s one, two, three strikes   (Hold up fingers as you count.) 
You’re out!  (Stick up thumb like “out.”)
At the old ball game.    


Cracker Jacks Book  - Cut the front and back off a bag or box of Cracker Jacks.  Cut paper the size of the bag and give each child a piece.  Let them draw and write what prize they would like to find in a box of Cracker Jacks.

Here's a simple visor that you can wear to the game.  Cut a moon shape out of a paper plate and let the children decorate it with markers and crayons.  Punch holes in the ends and tie on strings so you can fit the visor to children's heads.
