Craft Stick American Flag

We'll be heading up north next week for the 4th of July so I'm not sure if I'll be posting. No worries, we'll be back the following week with more crafts! Here is our 4th of July door hanging that M1 created this week. It looks great hanging on Grandma's front door & very festive. And this year we're not only creating RED.WHITE.BLUE to celebrate Independence Day but also World Cup Soccer!! We're so proud of our good friend Jay (#15 so you can cheer extra hard for him!!!) & the US team. We are looking forward to the game on Saturday!!!
Supplies- *Craft Sticks (9), *Red, White & Blue Paint, *Paint Brush, *White Paper, *Small Square of Cardboard, *Ribbon, *Scissors, *Glue, *Star Hole Punch
1. Begin by painting the craft sticks.  
***2 sticks-red, 2 sticks-white, 3 sticks- 1/2 red 1/2 blue, 2 sticks- 1/2 white 1/2 blue
As seen below...
2. While the sticks dry, begin covering the cardboard square with glue.
*Our piece of cardboard was 3inches by 3 1/2 inches.
3. Once the cardboard is completely covered with glue, begin placing the painted craft sticks into place one by one.
4. Using the hole punch & the white piece of paper begin punching out as many stars as you'd like.
*If you don't have a star punch, your little one could create the star look by dipping their finger in white paint & stamping it onto the blue portion of the flag. Cut out stars or stickers would work also.
5. Glue the stars onto the flag & allow time to dry.
6. Once dry, glue or tape the ribbon to the back of the flag so it can be hung where ever you wish!
Enjoy & Happy 4th of July!!!
Go U.S.A.
