Easy Paper Plate American Flag Craft | Celebrating 4th of July and Memorial Day
Creating crafts is one of the best teachable moments for your kids to learn about our history. If your kids are young like mine and love crafts it’s definitely something that will interest them.
I think my girls were amazed when they learned about the American Flag history. Mostly about the stars and how it represents each state in the United States. I love creating crafts with my girls that not only teaches about our history but also encourages them to want to learn more.
Materials needed to create your own American Flag
- For younger kids, you may want to draw the lines and help them by marking where each color will go. Older kids won’t need it.
- Draw a blue rectangle in the upper left-hand corner of your plate.
- Paint on six red stripes and then leave the white as is or you could paint it with white paint if you wish.
- When your blue rectangle has dried, Use a q-tip dipped in white paint to create your stars.
Tip: A great way to clean off red paint on stripes is to use a baby wipe. This will help your red lines appear straighter.
My girls really enjoyed this 4th of July kids craft, especially because it was very easy to create. They make the best 4th of July and Memorial Day decorations too! Easily add a string at the top of the flag and hang for all to enjoy!
I truly hope that creating this American Flag craft can encourage kids to learn more about the story of our nation.
