Celebrate the blessings of our nation with the little ones in your life while you craft this easy and fun emblem of our freedom
- Wooden craft sticks
- Paint brush
- Red, white and blue paint
- Hot glue gun
- Masking tape
- Star gems and stickers
- Blue and white paint pens
Step 1: Gather 8 wooden craft sticks. Then use hot glue to attach the ends of 2 sticks together, forming a 10"-long flag “handle.” Next, paint three sticks red and three sticks white; let dry. Hot-glue the painted sticks horizontally to the handle, forming red and white stripes.
Step 2: Box off a 2" square in the top left corner of the flag using masking tape. Paint the interior of this square with blue craft paint; let dry. Slowly remove the masking tape.
Step 3: Press sticky-back star gems onto the flag’s blue section. Then press colorful star stickers onto the handle. To finish, write 2 Corinthians 3:17 on the flag with white and blue paint pens.
