Easy Flag Craft for Kids

Sharing is caring!

I’m still passionate about turning cardboard boxes into DIY toys for kids but I have recently also developed a new interest in collecting natural elements like twigs, rocks and pine cones – all this to my husband’s despair who already labels me as a hoarder. I try to hide everything away from his eyes and into my craft room where he hardly enters.

He usually likes what I manage to turn these items into and sometimes he’s even blown away. This was the case with this flag craft.

It’s a very easy craft that you can make with kids of all ages.

Materials: twigs and sticks, paint (blue, red and white) and hot glue gun.

Step 1: Gather a few sticks and break them to the same length.

Step 2: Paint them to look like the American flag.

Step 3: Once the paint has dried, use white paint for the stars. You can replace the stars with dots or fingerprints to make it easier for young kids.

Step 4: Use two sticks at the back and glue the painted sticks to them.

Step 5: Attach a string on the top of the flag, from one side to the other

Happy 4th of July!
