Looking for an easy and fun craft for kids to do at home? The boys and I had fun making these Popsicle Stick American Flags for the 4th of July, but you can make them anytime you want to celebrate the red, white and blue. It was a pretty easy craft with not too much clean up. They got to paint and use glue so they were happy. The only tricky part are the stars so I ended up doing them because the boys got frustrated. If we make more, I'm going to get stickers. 

Make this easy DIY craft in honor of Flag Day, Independence Day, Memorial Day or anytime you want to celebrate America -  Have Fun!

    - Divide up your popsicle sticks

    - Paint the sticks:  For each flag you will need 3 red, 2 white whole sticks and 3 half blue sticks

    - Let them dry - it shouldn't take to long

    - Cut the blue sticks in half

    - Lay out the red and white sticks like the flag, then flip them over and tape the back, I used clear packing tape. 

    - Glue the cut blue sticks to the red and white sticks

    - Paint the stars on the blue sticks - or you could use stickers

Celebrate the Red, White and Blue!
