Paper American Flag

This flag craft has both gluing and painting, so my daughter had a blast with it.

 

Materials Needed

  • White construction/ Computer paper
  • Red and Blue construction paper
  • white paint
  • scissors
  • Glue

We started out by cutting a blue square and some strips from the red paper. If your child is old enough, just draw lines and let them cut. Cutting with scissors is such a great way to practice fine motor skills. I then helped my daughter glue on the stripes and the blue square.

After that, I dipped my daughter’s finger in the white paint and we added the “stars”. This was her favorite part.

  1. Love the glue as stars great idea. I would have thought glitter or something but using glue is definitely less mess than glitter!

    1. As an early childhood educator, I saw so many children who had never really got to play around with paint or glue. So many important skills are formed with simple activities like this one.
