Happy Birthday, USA!
What does the 4th of July mean to you?
Teaching our son about the minute details of our nation's independence may be a bit too early for an almost three year old to comprehend. However, there are plenty things you can do with your curious toddler to evoke patriotism and love for your country. From patriotic themed arts and crafts to fun songs like "Yankee Doodle" can evoke patriotism in the smallest of kids. In my latest video, I used Captain America as a tool to teach the history of our nation’s independence in order to associate a relatable figure along the juxtaposition of historical references throughout the patriotic surprise egg unboxing. Captain America, yes, is a Marvel superhero, and Captain America is in no way a true American hero, but it’s a face that kids recognize. Captain America is a symbol of strength and perseverance, and I feel his background often mimics that of the strength and perseverance of the soon-to-be American people before the Declaration was signed.
