Step 1: Start by painting the bottom 1” of the paper rolls blue and let it dry completely.

Step 2: Paint red and white stripes to cover the rest of the paper roll. Paint the stripes vertically. If you want to have the stripes equally divided, you may want to use a pencil to draw them first and then hand it to your kids for painting. Otherwise, free painting is great.

To make sure that the white and red paint don’t get mixed up and you end up with a pink flag, paint the red or white stripes first, let dry and then do the other color.

Step 3: Draw a few stars on white card stock paper, cut them out and glue at the bottom of the paper rolls, on the blue part.

Step 4: Use the scissors to cut the stripes. Follow the lines between the red and white colors.
