Happy 4th of July...Some Red, White & Blue Fun !

Happy Birthday America!
And a HUGE thanks to all the men and women who have served in the Armed Forceswhich includes my husband (USMC),
and all uncles and cousins who have served!

    Yesterday, I squeezed in a few Red, White & Blue activities!
 We enjoyed the spray bottle painting last week so this time we decided to use the colors Red & Blue. I love the way the water made the paint drip down, cuz when it was all done, she added some stars and it looked like the American Flag (as seen in the eyes of a 3 year old!)
    Then I made a quick graphing activity for the 4th. The little munchkin wanted to munch on some star marshmallows I found at walmart, and I thought- let’s graph them and then eat them!  =) I know, I know.always trying to make things into a teaching activity! What can I say??
Click here for your copy of a Star Spangled Graph that you can use! 
(It can be also used with star stickers or any other star things you can find!)

    We also enjoyed a yummy Red, White & Blue snack!
(Strawberry Jello, Blueberry Jello, Whip Cream and blueberries)  
    And last night we enjoyed a Bisons baseball game, here in Buffalo. After a small rain delay, Bisons beat the Bulls and it was time for the Concert by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, followed by fireworks!

    Here is the little munchkin having fun and getting ready for the big show with her glow sticks! 
And here she is with big brother, all ready for the Firework show to begin! 
 Her face while watching the Firework Show...priceless!

It was a wonderful night!
Now time to get ready for a fun 4th of July BBQ at a friend’s place!
