Stars and stripes

Look at the American flag with your child. Help them count the stars and stripes. Discuss what they mean (50 stars = 50 states, 13 stripes = 13 original colonies). Have your child draw their own flag to hang up. For an extra challenge, consider what the various colors represent. And take a look at other countries’ flags and do a comparison of the symbols and colors on their flags.
