If you are looking for a kid’s craft for Memorial Day or The Fourth of July, this corrugated cardboard flag is just the thing you need.
If you are an Amazon addict like I am, you probably are rolling in cardboard boxes. We adore cardboard. It is a great material for arts and crafts. We are especially fond of working with corrugated cardboard. It works wonderfully for printmaking and the texture makes for interesting crafts. The ridges on the cardboard make a perfect template for the stripes on this corrugated cardboard flag.
There are 2 weeks left until the 4th of July & 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 & blue & two more weeks of 4th of July crafting.
Toilet Paper Tube Waving Flag
Cut two toilet paper tubes in half like shown.
Line the 4 pieces side by side so that they line up. Paint the American flag across the 4 pieces of cardboard & let dry.
Glue the flag piece furthest to the right to the right hand side of a piece of paper. Leave about 1 1/2 inches from the top. Overlap the first piece of cardboard with the next piece. Make sure to place it just a little bit higher & to the left as shown. Continue to place & overlap the other two flag pieces in this same way.
Glue a wooden stick for the flag pole.
