Students learn about our Founding Fathers as they progress through school. Many think it is a boring subject and will gladly pass on any extracurricular projects. I have made a nice list of fun ways for both kids and adults to celebrate our country and its past leaders. This list includes not only coloring pages, but also a few crafts, too. Our country is a wonderful place to live and breathe. Enjoy!
Note: The first few are from the same site, http://printables.familyeducation.com. In order to view the printables you will need Adobe Acrobat, (click here to download it if you need it), and to put in your email address. They only ask for your email addy… nothing more.
