Fourth of July Flag Craft Project

Hello everybody!

I hope you guys are well.

The Fourth of July is a couple of days away and I wanted to find a craft project for my daughter, Olivia, to do for this day.  I found a great project with craft sticks and here’s what we did:

You will need the instructions (http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/july4/craftstickflag/), craft sticks, glue, blue paper, white stars (I used a small star puncher that I have), paintbrush, and red and white acrylic paints.

We painted the sticks, let them dry, and then glued one long stick in the back and broke another in two and glued those in the middle and on the other side of the craft sticks to make the flag sturdier.  I didn’t have enough craft sticks that were required in the instructions, but we were still able to make the flag.  No biggie!

Olivia glued a small blue square to the corner of the sticks and then glued on the stars.

We glued the final craft stick to make the handle longer and I also used masking tape on the back of the flag and the handle to secure it better.
