In honor of Independence Day (USA) on Tuesday, July 4, I am sharing an easy craft with you today.
You will need:
- Index Cards
- Straws or Sticks
- Color : I used oil pastels because they are very bright. Crayons, Markers, Watercolor would all work well.
Here’s how it works:
Color the index cards, and tape them to the sticks!
I told you it was simple!
Both my kids enjoyed this craft, and when the little one got bored I brought out some stickers to extend the fun.
My three year old made “American” flags for himself and Daddy. And we very briefly discussed why we celebrate Independence Day. I also made a German flag and we talked about where Oma and mommy come from.
You can make this as educational or as free form as you like. I hope you enjoy!
By the way, I stuck our old play dough in a little dixie cup to hold the finished flags.
