Countries with Red, White and Blue Flags
We happen to be American, but there are a LOT of countries that have red, white, and blue flags! Any of these countries can get in on our patriotic activities. Just embrace the red, white, and blue (and in many cases, the stars or stripes), and ignore anything that is firmly American-themed.
All countries should be able to celebrate their colors and special holidays with pride.

Toddler Patriotic Activities for Kids 2-4
I’m using the term “toddler” a bit loosely right here, because usually 4 year olds are definitely not still considered toddlers, but I still call my 3 year old a baby, OK? She’s the last one, let me live in blissful ignorance about her true life stage.
Regardless, even if your child is a true “toddler” they will have fun with these patriotic activities for toddlers.
I don’t know about every toddler, but my toddlers have always loved throwing things and making a mess. This makes the Patriotic Balloon Painting activity ideal. Just use washable paint and make sure they have a change of clothing.

This sounds like a lot with a name like, Patriotic Paint Bombs, but truly, it’s just exploding bags of dyed baking soda and vinegar. Toddlers will LOVE it, as long as they aren’t noise-sensitive.
The original theme for this activity was Fizzing Rainbows, but you can easily make it a fizzing flag or fizzing stars! That would be so cute!
