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:
