Felt Build-a-Flag



This is an easy & patriotic activity you can do over and over.
My boys had fun building their own American flags again, and again....and again! 

Supplies:
  • Felt (red, white & blue)
  • Scissors

Here's what you do:
  • Cut out a rectangle with the white felt.
  • Cut out a small rectangle with the blue felt.
  • Cut out 3 long stripes and 2 short stripes with the red felt.
  • Cut out 5-8 (or however many you want) stars using the white felt, like this:
    • Draw a star on a piece of paper and cut it out.
    • Pin it onto the white felt and cut around it.
    • You can even do 2 layers at once if you have good scissors. :)


  • Put the flag together once or twice with your child so they can see what it's supposed to look like.
  • Then let them do it all on their own!


  • You can even take turns making silly flags putting the stripes and stars in all different places. :)
Happy 4th of July!
