There are 2 weeks left until the 4th of July and we are already enjoying the sounds of the holiday. I can hear the fireworks going off nearby & it makes me smile. We have two more weeks of fireworks popping at night, two more weeks of everything red, white and blue and two more weeks of 4th of July crafting. This is simple cardboard tube craft looks like a flag waving in the wind.
Cardboard Tube Waving Flag
What you will need:
Cut two cardboard tubes in half like shown.
Line up the 4 pieces side by side so that they line up straight next to each other. Paint the American flag across the 4 pieces of cardboard tube and set them aside to let them dry.
Glue the flag piece furthest to the right to the right hand side of a piece of paper. Leave a couple of inches of space from the top. Overlap the next piece over the first piece. Make sure to place it just a little bit higher and to the left as shown. Continue to place and overlap the other two flag pieces in this same manner.
Glue a wooden skewer to the paper to the left of the flag for the flag pole to finish it off. You can paint a sky or fireworks around your flag too. Have a happy and safe 4th everyone.
