4th of July Project: Popsicle Stick Flag Craft

I love to involve my kids in holiday celebrations, and this fun Popsicle Stick Flag Craft is a good one because not only do they love making these, but they serve a fun decorations or place settings as well! These are easy to make, so they work for a wide variety of ages, and this is also a very fun project for a classroom, scouting, pre-school or Sunday school type setting.
They are easy to stick into the ground (or planters) as well, so once you are done, they are fun to decorate with!

Popsicle Sticks (you’ll need 11 sticks for 1 flag)
Elmer’s Glue
Acrylic Paint in red, white and blue. I used:

Flag Crafts

If you’re making several of these at once, you may want to glue them together and let them dry for a few hours or overnight. You may also want to add the final stick if you’re going to make these ahead of time.

Line up 9 popsicle sticks. Take another stick and glue it on the right side of the sticks as shown. Let dry.

Flip over the flag and using a pencil, section off about 1/3 of the left side of the top four sticks to create the blue boundary for the stars.

Paint the flag using red, white and blue acrylic paint. Let dry. Add star stickers. Glue handle onto the existing stick. Let dry and wave with pride!
