|American Flag Craft|
I came across this blog, http://iheartcraftythings.blogspot.com/2011/06/fun-simple-flag-craft.html from a pin on Pinterest. There are tons of cute craft ideas, and this one definitely looked fun and simple as the title indicated. I love finding projects where I've got all (or at least enough to make it work) supplies on hand already. On a side note, I think we must have the same table where we do our crafts! Check out the link above for the step by step instructions and pictures on how to make the flag.

After we finished making the flag, we decided to kick this craft up a notch. We took 4 jumbo Popsicle sticks and glued them together. Turns out, there was no way the glue was going to hold up to a 4 year old waving a flag around, so we wrapped masking tape all the way around the "pole" to secure it. An empty wrapping paper tube, yard stick, or paint stir sticks would make good poles as well.
Now he's been running around the house like crazy, which is typical actually, but this time he's waving around his new American flag. Now lets just see if he remembers any of the fun facts we talked about. Enjoy your holiday everyone! Happy Fourth of July!
