Happy 100th Birthday, Arizona!
As you may recall, Bettijo and I both live in the Phoenix, Arizona area. The other day as she and I were driving to an event we spotted a new official sign on the freeway marking the centennial of Arizona’s statehood, which happens to be on February 14th.
I had no idea! (Where have I been?) Anyway, I’m always looking for excuses to celebrate with (and teach) my boys, so I’ve planned a small birthday party for Arizona that we’ll be having during our Monday evening Family Night. I’m planning to talk a little bit about the state’s history, give the boys a quick Arizona worksheet to color then sing Happy Birthday and enjoy a properly accessorized cupcake.
As part of our celebration I put together some Arizona-themed Party Punchables and a quick printable AZ flag banner. Also, I made a coloring flag worksheet for my boys, so I’m sharing them all with you here:

The worksheet is awesome! Just printed it out. Since I am a California native and newish to AZ, it has some great state history!
Yay! We hope you’re finding AZ to be a great place to live! Thanks for letting us know you like the worksheet!
Well aren’t these lovely?
What program do you use to make these? I always wonder. I read an umpteen # of blogs but have yet to figure out what programs people use to make these wonderful graphic things. I am not overly technically inclined and anything outside of Microsoft Word baffles me…sort of.
Keep up the great work. I loved the Valentine ideas.
Happy 100th Arizona!
Thanks for the sweet words! Since our pre-Mom days, Bettijo and I have been graphic designers so we use a professional program Adobe Illustrator the most. With only a few exceptions, we draw all our own artwork on here (so you wont find any of our worksheet images in clip art). Hope that helps!
Thnaks for the AZ printables. They are perfect!
