Organize a mini parade to celebrate Fourth of July with students. Using simple materials, students can create miniature floats to celebrate the holiday.


  • Shoeboxes
  • Red, white and blue construction paper
  • Foil or gift wrap
  • Craft supplies (such as tape, glue, tissue paper, etc.)
  • Small knick-knacks to represent the United States


  • Place the shoebox upside down and wrap it with foil or gift wrap.
  • Allow students to use their creativity and imagination to decorate their floats.
  • When finished, showcase students’ floats parade-style!
