Popsicle Stick Flag

Make a popsicle stick flag to celebrate our American heritage and freedom that the red, white and blue represent. You can add your own embellishments such as glitter paint, stickers and gems or create a simple American flag using just paint and the popsicle sticks. This makes a great activity to have ready for your family BBQ, just put the supplies out on a table and let the kids have fun making their own U.S.A. flag.

    This is possibly the cutest thing ever. And while it’s awesome for 4th of July, it’s also a great idea for us Aussies who might like to do the Aussie flag version for our January 26th Australia Day celebrations! I’m keeping this idea on my list, and sending it to other mums here too. Thanks!
