Flag Day Kid Art

Yesterday was Flag Day so I thought it would be really cute to have the kids make flags.

Materials:

  • 2 – Blue Card Stock 5″ x 5″
  • 2 – White Card Stock 8 1/2″ x 11″
  • Ruler
  • Red Pencil
  • Glue Sick
  • White Ink Pad (I used Studio G Pigment Ink)
  • Red Ink Pad (I used Tim Holtz Distress Festive Berries)
  • Circle Template (I used my Pan Pastel® to trace around
  • Blue Marker/Pencil
1.  Measure out the stripes width approximately  3/4″ – you will have excess to trim.

Finished stripes ready for the blue square.

2.  Taking the blue marker or pencil draw a circle in the center of one of the blues squares.  Using the white ink pad, ink finger and stamp 13 fingerprints around the circle.  The other square have the older child count and print 50 finger prints.  Glue square onto the upper left hand corner of the flag.

For Booga’s Flag I decided to do the “Betsy Ross Flag” for ease. He is 2 so patience is short.

I know he isn’t looking but the other ones he was waving the flag, so I figure pointing would be better.

3.  Proudly display flags for all to see.
