Fourth of July DIY Paper Flags

July Fourth

Why spend extra money on store-bought flags for July 4th when the kids make their own crafty versions? This Fourth of July kids’ craft is super-simple, but will still entertain your youngest party guests. Craft the American flags as part of your family’s picnic or BBQ activities or try it before the holiday as a way to prep for your party and create patriotic décor.

Arts and Crafts Materials

  • Red, white and blue card stock paper
  • Scissors
  • Thick craft sticks
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Optional: Silver glitter

How-to Steps

  1. Cut an 8×10-inch piece of white card stock in half or in quarters (depending on how big or small you want the flag craft to be).
  2. Cut stripes from the red card stock, matching the length of the white rectangle.
  3. Cut a smaller rectangle from the blue card stock paper.
  4. Glue the red stripes onto the white paper, leaving spaces in between.
  5. Glue the blue rectangle to the top left of the flag.
  6. Add stars to the blue area with small pieces of cut white paper.
  7. Optional: Instead of creating stars from the paper, paint a wash of glue over the blue section and sprinkle silver glitter on top.
  8. Attach the flag to the craft stick. Glue the stick to the left side of the flag.
