#3. Flag Day

by Barbara J. Feldman

Flag Day Printable (** for premium members only)

With roots in the nineteenth century, June 14th wasn’t officially established as Flag Day until May 30, 1916, when President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation. It’s celebration continued in various communities for many years, but it didn’t really take off until August 3, 1949 when President Harry Truman signed an Act of Congress designating it National Flag Day.

The Holiday Spot: Flag Day
“Though the Flag Day was first celebrated in 1877, with the centennial of the U.S. flag’s existence, the idea of making it a public celebration is believed to have originated in 1885.” Celebrate Flag Day at The Holiday Spot with their collection of computer wallpapers, crafts, historical flags, history articles, and a Flag Day Quiz. “How many changes had the Flag undergone since the first National Flag was born?”

EnchantedLearning: US Flag Day Crafts
For Flag Day, Enchanted Learning offers dozens of patriotic crafts for preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary ages. All can be made with common craft supplies, such as paper, scissors, glue, string, pencils and popsicle sticks. Projects that caught my eye include a flag-themed wind sock a patriotic pinwheel, and a flag pebble. Some of the printable activities are only available for paid members.
