Here is a fast flag craft the boys and I did together to talk about Memorial Day. You could also do this for Flag Day or 4th of July coming up.
To prep the “flags” I hot glued some long and short Popsicle sticks together to make a base for them.I put the two short sticks in the middle so that I could add a magnet on the back after they painted their flags.
The boys painted their flags and used star stickers to finish it off after it was dry. (Yes I helped the three year old-my five year old wanted to do it all by himself though, can you tell which is his?!)
As I said I added some adhesive magnets to the back after the paint was dry and the boys were very happy to hang them up on the fridge to show them off! Fast and easy!
