Free Labor Day Patriotic Kids’ Crafts & Activities

Entry #2795, August 29, 2013 

Since Labor Day is a holiday meant to celebrate and honor our hardworking workers, why not plan an activity that teaches children the meaning of the holiday with patriotic colors? Whether you want crafts your kids can do on their own or ones you can have fun doing with them, here are ideas to inspire you!

Here are just a few fun and free activities that your young party goers can do:

Coloring Pages:

It looks like this Labor Day is going to be a hot one! So maybe set up a blanket or picnic table under a nice shade tree and turn it into a coloring station. Fill colorful bins with crayons and markers and print out some free coloring pages online. There are numerous sites that offer free coloring printables that follow the Labor Day theme. For example, Enchanted has free printables that allow children to color in images of what kind of job they would like to do when they grow-up ̶ what a perfect theme for Labor Day!

Make a Flag:

What better way to celebrate this iconic American Holiday than by waving around the red, white and blue stars and stripes of our flag?

Children can easily make their own flags with construction paper, straws, and tape. Simply have them color a flag on a sturdy piece of construction paper and then tape or staple the straw to the side of their homemade flag. They will be sure to have fun waving their own creation while singing our anthem.

Another, easier option is to download printable flags such as the ones on and have the children simply cut them out and glue or tape them to a wooden dowel or straw.

A Labor Day bash is not complete without sparklers! Provide sparklers for all your party goers’ ̶ young and old alike! Just be sure to have Mom or Dad light the sparklers and assign a parent to watch over the kids while using them – the sparklers may be small, but they can get hot!
