I was browsing through some old magazines at my Mother-in-Law’s house last week and came across a fun idea of making a flag out of paint sticks. I think it was in a Woman’s World Magazine, but I’m not certain. :-/ Since I hadn’t made any crafts for the 4th yet with the kids, I knew we had to make it. It turned out so cute!
Have your child paint the section blue and then immediately remove the painter’s tape while the paint is still wet. Then let the paint dry completely.
Here is what it looked like after it was all painted and dry.
It looked pretty cool as it was, but we wanted to spice it up a bit so my boys glued medium and large sized buttons on the red and white stripes, and small white buttons in the blue section to act as stars.
