Statue of Liberty Portrait Poster
On the Fourth of July, Americans take time to celebrate the many meanings of national independence. For kids, the day is often an exciting time of parades, barbecues and fireworks. But those abstract concepts like “liberty” and "nation" can be tough to grasp!
Here’s a poster project that your child can make as she explores the meaning of this day. This is something she can do by herself, but this is also a fun project for several kids to do together, so that they can talk about their different ideas and inspirations. The finished project will make for some great Fourth of July decoration, especially you have more than one to display in your home!
