Juneteenth is almost here! Are you having trouble finding decorations or crafts for the kids? You’re not alone. Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, is not as popular or widely celebrated as the 4th of July. Fortunately, I decided to recreate one of the popular art projects found on Pinterest to celebrate Juneteenth. Hope you enjoy making this easy craft stick flag to celebrate Juneteenth with your kids.

I wanted to create a simple craft for Juneteenth that children can use to decorate their home. There are two different flags that many people use to celebrate this holiday. I decided to create the Pan-African flag since it’s mostly used by the Black community.
It’s summer and I know a lot of children will be eating popsicles. Save those sticks to create this simple flag to celebrate Juneteenth. Kids can work on color recognition as well as counting. I can’t guarantee this art project will be mess-free but it will be a lot of fun to make at home.
