A fun Paper American Flag craft! Making a simple American flag out of paper with your kids presents a great opportunity to teach them about the flag. Tell them how each stripe represents one of the original 13 colonies and how each star represents each state in the USA. This is a great way to make learning fun!

What you'll need:

  • Red, white and blue construction paper
  • White 3-D paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue
How to make your American Flag:
  • Cut out a square of blue construction paper that is 4 1/2" wide x 4" tall.
  • Cut out strips of red construction paper.
  • Glue the red strips of paper onto the white piece of construction paper to create the stripes.
  • Glue the blue square in the corner of the flag.
  • Use the 3-D paint 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! Star stickers may be somewhat easier.

Tissue Paper Fish Craft

We really liked this fish craft and it was perfect for summertime. The contact paper is the key to making this craft "toddler friendly" - no messy glue to contend with and it's easy for them to add the tissue paper all by themselves. The tissue paper makes the craft fun for small kids and the project has a great stained glass effect in the sunlight.
