Corrugated Cardboard Flag Craft

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.

Peel cardboard for this corrugated American flag craft. This is perfect for Memorial Day or the Fourth of July. Summer arts and crafts for kids.

Patriotic Spaghetti Crafts & Sunday’s Best Linkup #20

Spaghetti Flag Craft


Welcome to week 20 of our Sunday’s Best Linkup. We are all so happy to have you all back again this week. We had some great entries last week & are excited to see what great new posts that you have to share with us this week.

Since Memorial Day is coming up, we did a few quick & easy patriotic crafts using spaghetti.

Spaghetti Flag

For our flag we just broke up pieces of spaghetti to form a flag. We used a pasta shell as the top of the flagpole. We glued it to a sheet of paper, let it dry & painted it in red, white & blue.

Welcome to Week 20 of  Mother 2 Mother’s Sunday’s Best Linkup Our theme this month is May Flowers.
