Kids' Craft to Celebrate Juneteenth

Many families decorate their homes with red banners and
feature red foods in their Juneteenth holiday picnics and barbecues.
Red stands for the blood that people shed as slaves.

Make a Paper Chain to remember the important ideas
celebrated on the Juneteenth holiday!

Red construction paper
Crayons or markers
Glue stick

1. On the piece of paper, use a ruler to mark off 1-inch strips. Cut the strips.

2. With a crayon or marker, print words on the strips that are important to remember on Juneteenth. Some ideas are "freedom," "hopes," "slavery," and "goals."

3. Form one of the strips into a circle and glue the ends together.

4. Form the next circle and loop it into the first circle. Glue the ends. Repeat until all of the strips are connected. Make the chain as long as you want by adding more strips.

5. Share the words on your chain, and tell friends why they are important ideas to remember!

How does replica of chains in any way honor those who have been lost and that of Juneteenth? Where is the pride, let alone value in this craft idea?

Hi everyone My name is Jennifer from New Jersey USA , I saw comments from people who had already got their loan from Anderson Loan Finance. Honestly, I thought it was a scam, and then I decided to make a request based on their recommendations. A few days ago, I confirmed in my personal bank account amounting to $15,000 dollars which I applied for. This is really a good news and I am so very happy that I advise all those who need a real loan and who are sure to reimburse to apply through their email (text or call) +1 719 629 0982.
