Christian 4th of July Crafts

Taking your regular 4th of July decorations and crafts and making them Christian can be as simple as using some very well known phrases! You can also add in crosses or other religious symbols into your celebrating. Today, let’s check out some ideas for making Christian 4th of July crafts.

Some of the phrases you can use in your Christian 4th of July crafts include:

  • “In God We Trust”
  • “One Nation Under God”
  • “God Bless America”
  • “God Shed His Grace On Thee”
  • “Glory Glory Hallelujah” 

Another way to work Christian concepts into 4th of July crafts is by using patriotic themed bible verses. 

You may want to make these fun patriotic Christian necklaces. So cute and fun for kids to put together, and they have a great message, allowing you to witness as well as celebrate! 

 

Try your hand at making these red white and blue God’s eye crafts.
 
 
Raising Little Disciples has a lot of cute red white and blue cross crafts including this faux stained glass craft, t shirts, and a paper craft as well.
 
 
Sunday School Crafts Blog has this really cool construction paper craft where you can pray for your community.  You cut out your hands and write different things you can pray for in the community on each finger. I think our communities can definitely used some prayer right now. So cute!
 
Christian Preschool Printables has several adorable Christian 4th of July coloring pages for kids that are totally free and easy to print! There are even a few with patriotic bible verses. Go here to print yours and scroll.
 
Also over on Christian Preschool Printables you can find this free printable God Bless America wreath. So cute!
 
The same link to the Christian Preschool Printables page includes even more coloring pages, printable classroom posters, bookmarks for kids, and more! So definitely check out that- that link is a jackpot! Lol. 
 

Some Catholic 4th Of July Resources

Also, here’s a link from 4 Real Forums that has a list of all the saints associated with each US state. Really neat! And if you’re interested, here a website dedicated  to American saints 🙂

The patron saint of the United States of America is Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, and the patroness of the Americas is Our Lady of Guadalupe, so you may be able to work them in as well. 

You can find more Saint feast days and fun ways to living the liturgical year in July here.

    Thanks for this post, Lacy. Through one of the links about American saints, I found a new book title I'd like to look into, Heroes of the Cross: American Martyrology, from 1945. Lately, I've been fascinated by the martyrs of early American history, the French and Spanish missionaries in the 1500 and 1600s. We were not taught about this in school.

    I've always wanted to write a book about how God has blessed this country and helped in its inception so we can all live according to His will and in freedom. Really, America is the only place on earth where people can still do this! Still working on the idea. Thanks for giving me one more lead. 🙂

    God bless America!

    We have been taught that Our Lady of Guadalupe was the patroness of the Americas.

    Thanks again,

    There is also the "Mary and the 50 states" poster available for $10 at CatholicArtworks.com. A different pic and title for Mary is shown for each state, and the idea was taken from the bicentennial litany. Very pretty!

  4. You are reading my mind Lacy! Great ideas that we will be incorporating into our "4th of July Seder" ( I got this phrase from a "Focus on the Family talk by a Jewish man who thinks that Christians should celebrate the Christian heritage of our country 😉 ) I looked up the Patron of our State, Georgia. The patron is Immaculate Heart of Mary! I haven't done the tye dye yet so I am wondering if I can get the boys to make red, white, and blue Immaculate Heart shirts…. Still thinking… lol
