Flag Day Clay Craft for Kids of All Ages

flag-day

June 14 is Flag Day! Celebrate with a special kids’ craft—in red, white and blue. Create a textured flag, using clay. Instead of making a full 3D sculpture, your child will use a method similar to finger painting (but with clay). The result is a flag that pops off the paper. This easy art activity option is ideal for kids of all ages. You can adapt the craft to fit your preschooler’s needs or extend it for your older elementary school-aged child.

Materials You’ll Need

  • Cardboard (reuse the side of an old box)
  • Red, white and blue modeling clay
  • Scissors
  • A pencil
  • Optional: Sequins or glitter (in red, white and blue)

How-To Art Activity Steps

  1. Cut the cardboard into a rectangle. Younger child may need a smaller piece of board, whole older kids can handle a larger space to work.
  2. Draw the flag design on the cardboard with a pencil.
  3. Cover each area (the blue star area and the red and white stripes) with modeling clay. Have your child pull the clay apart into dime-sized pieces. They can then smooth the clay over the cardboard, finger paint style. Don’t worry, the clay will stick. To give the artwork more texture, add extra layers of clay.
  4. Create stars on the blue section with white clay.
  5. Optional: Add sequins or glitter to make the flag sparkle!
