Patriotic Baton Craft
Strike Up the Band and start the Parade! Everyone can join in the fun with their own baton made from this FreeKidsCrafts original project. You can use them to parade down Main Street or just around your classroom. Have fun celebrating the holiday.
The stripes represent the original 13 Colonies and the stars represent the 50 states of the Union. The colors of the flag are symbolic as well; red symbolizes hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and blue represents vigilance, perseverance and justice.
