Craft Stick Flag
Craft sticks (popsicle sticks work fine), red and white paint, blue and white construction paper, glue
Paint five craft sticks red and four sticks white. Let them dry. Glue them together in an alternating pattern (red, white, red). Next, glue the painted sticks to two other sticks that will serve as the anchor for the flag; one stick must be long enough for the flag handle and one just long enough to connect the flag. Draw white stars on the blue construction paper (or cut them out of white paper) and then cut out the paper and glue it to the flag.
