How to make your very own Rocking Uncle Sam craft:
Step 1 Download our Print & Go Rocking Uncle Sam Craft, then print it on white cardstock. It includes both a black and white and a colored version. You can use crayons or markers to color the black-and-white pages before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2 Cut out the big half circle and fold it into half. Follow the broken lines as your guide. Glue one side and leave the curved bottom part open.
Step 3 Next, cut out Uncle Sam’s parts! It includes a head, hair, hat, ribbon, sleeves, hands, and clothes.
Step 4 Attach his blue suit to the folded half circle you made earlier. Glue it on both sides of the shaded area.
Step 5 Now, let’s complete Uncle Sam’s head! Start by attaching his gray hair behind his head, then glue his head onto the hat.
Step 6 Next, glue the ribbon to his neck, in the space between his suit. Then, attach his head with a hat on top of it! You’re almost there!
Step 7 To complete our Rocking Uncle Sam craft, glue the hands at the end of each sleeve. Then, attach his completed arm on both sides. Hooray!

What will your child learn in making the Rocking Uncle Sam Craft?
While preschoolers cannot perfectly create the Rocking Uncle Sam craft on their own, they can practice Kindergarten skills that will be useful in the future! For example, actions involved in completing this craft like cutting out the pieces of Uncle Sam, folding the body, adding glue, and assembling it all together require small and precise movements of their hands. As they work on it, they learn to control their hand muscles, resulting in the development of fine motor skills! With this, they can do more activities with ease soon! Moreover, you can teach them about Uncle Sam and love of country, or they’ll surely be curious enough to ask!
