Making a Patriotic Collage


Making a Patriotic Collage

To make a patriotic collage, start with a poster board or large piece of construction paper. I like to choose a color instead of starting with white. My kids chose blue, but you could also start with red. It should be one of the colors of the American flag. Now cut out pictures from magazines that remind you of being an American, like an eagle, Mount Rushmore, or some American soldiers. You can do the entire collage just with pictures from magazines, with people eating apple pie, playing baseball, or doing any other typical American activity.


Write β€œAmerica” on the top in bubble letters, and color in the letters with red, white, and blue crayons or colored pencils. You could also cut out bubble letters from construction paper or use large alphabet stickers instead. You can add patriotic cloth or napkins with the American flag to add texture. Color a map of the United States, and cut it out and glue it to your poster. Overlap all your pictures so that there is no poster showing except for the title. Now your gorgeous patriotic collage is finished. Hang it up on the wall for everyone to enjoy.

    I love it. I would be able to make one just with pictures of my imediate family in uniform! Every one of us has served or is serving in the military. My dad did three tours in Nam and retired after a tour in Afghanistan. Go Red White and Blue!

      I would like to thank your family for serving to protect our freedom. My husband served in the Air Force for 4 years, too!

    I like the first collage a lot. πŸ™‚ I’ve never really been very good at, or really enjoyed making collages, but I’ve had to help the kids make a few for school so far.
