A fun and easy Foam American Flag craft. These are great for kids to wave during a parade and if you make multiple flags it's a great way to decorate for the 4th of July! They look great in a flower bed or as a centerpiece for your Fourth of July party. This is a fun and simple craft that your kids will get a kick out of.

What you'll need:

  • Wooden dowel
  • White 3-D paint
  • Craft Foam in red, white, and blue
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pen
How to make your American Foam Flag:
  • Cut a piece of white foam 6 1/2" wide and 4"tall.
  • Cut a piece of blue foam 2 3/4" wide and 2 1/4" tall.
  • Cut 4 pieces of red foam, one 5" long and 3/4" tall, one 5"x1/2", one 2 3/4"x 3/4", one 2 3/4"x1/2".
  • Leave approximately 1 inch of white foam uncovered on the left side. Glue the red and blue foam pieces to the white background so that it looks like the flag.
  • Use the 3-D paing to add the stars to the blue piece. *Note* It is hard to fit all 50 stars on such a small flag so we just added as many as would fit!
  • Use the pen and poke a 4 small holes up the left side of the flag (this is why you left an inch blank earlier).
  • Weave your wooden dowel through the holes.
