Supplies for Craft Stick American Flag

Directions

  1. Start by gathering all your supplies for this craft stick American flag for kids.
  2. Next, use a hot glue gun to attach five 8-in craft sticks to a 10-in craft stick to create your flag. You can also use recycled popsicle sticks. The size doesn’t matter. Make sure an adult is helping with this step.
  3. Paint the first stick red then paint the next stick white. Keep alternating until you are finished. Set it aside to allow the paint to dry.
  4. Use scissors to cut a small square from blue cardstock. Then glue the square on the left top corner of the craft stick flag.
  5. Finally, download, print and cut the stars template. I provided 3 different sizes for your flag. Glue at least 6 stars on the blue square to complete your craft stick American flag. You can replace the paper stars with white or silver sticker stars.
