I was going through my son’s school schedule the other night and we were updating his calendar. Normally every time I say you have a day off, he ignores what day it is because he is that excited. This year for the first time he actually asked me what Labor Day was.
So I sat there and tried to explain to him what it was but the amount of history I threw at a 7 year old and his bored reaction kinda made that a waste of time 🙂 Instead we decided to make a Labor Day informational cube. Even 4 year also made one the best. His was more about drawing and coloring but by the end he learned what labor meant.
I am not a crafty person so this educational labor day craft for kids is not full of paint and cut outs. It’s just crayons and paper but after they are done, they will love presenting their project.
- 6 square pieces of paper
- Crayons/Pencil Crayons
- Teach your kids 10 facts about Labor Day based on their age level. Examples include
- What it represents
- When did it start
- Where did it start
- What do people do on Labor Day
- What is Labor
- What kinda of people perform Labor?
- On the 1st square, ask your child to write Labor Day and 3 facts they learned from you teaching them above. Also to draw a picuture to represent Labor Day. My son drew an American Flag.
- On the other 5 pieces of paper, ask them to draw a person that has benefited your community, one who performs work and write their title on there.
- Tape or glue all the sides together to make a cube
- Ask your child to present it to you, you will be amazed of how much they picked up
- They can even switch their cubes with friends to learn more!
