How in the world is it July already?! Maybe it’s just because my brain is still stuck in March when everything shut down, but every time a new month comes i’m seriously shocked. I had planned to have these patriotic directed drawings ready for you weeks ago, but I blinked and before I knew it… it’s already the 4th of July!
These patriotic directed drawings would be perfect for any time in the year, though, not just Independence Day. In kindergarten, one of our standards is being able to identify the American flag, and I think the American heart directed drawing would be the perfect craft to do during that unit!
American Heart Patriotic Directed Drawing
How cute is this American flag heart?
This directed drawing is pretty simple too. If the stars are too hard to draw in the way I drew them, you can draw the 5 line version using pencil and then trace the outer edges with a black crayon or marker.
After coloring the flag in, I cut around the border and glued it on black construction paper to make it pop!

Fireworks Directed Drawing
I just love this directed drawing because it is so fun! You can get really creative in how you make the fireworks.
Students will draw the firework, cut it out, and then glue it on black paper. They will then draw firework explosions around it.
I used neon crayons to draw the explosions, but I think construction paper crayons would work better.
You could also let students pain the fireworks with acrylic paint or glue and then sprinkle glitter to make it really shine!
