28 Craft Sticks or Popsicle Sticks
Paint or Markers
#1: Take 3 craft sticks and place them on the table side by side varying in height next to each other. This will be how the flag is held together.
#2: Lay all 26 craft sticks on top of the 3 craft sticks. Make sure all 26 craft sticks are touching one of the 3 back craft sticks. You may need to use more craft sticks on the back of the flag to hold it together.
#3: Once all 26 sticks are in place glue them to the back 3 craft sticks.
#4: Allow glue to dry
#5: Use a pencil to draw a small box in the top left hand corner of the craft sticks. This will be where the stars of the US flag will go.
#6: Paint the bottom stick red and then alternate between red and white until you reach the top. Be careful not to paint inside the box you drew for the stars.
#7: Allow paint to dry
#8: Paint the part of the craft sticks that you made a box blue.
#9: Allow to dry
#10: Draw stars on top of the blue paint.
