Make Your Own Flag!

What You Need:

  • Construction paper – assorted colors
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pictures of flags

What You Do:

  1. Go through some pictures of different flags and coats of arms. Let your child see the great diversity of symbols, shapes and colors between them.
  2. Next, have your child take a piece of construction paper for his background and start to create a flag of his own. He can use markers, cut pieces of paper and glue them on, or even include things like bottle caps, shells, buttons or other things he likes. Have him embellish his design with glitter glue and stickers if you have them.
  3. When he is done with his flag have him write a story of his flag or coat of arms. Ask him what country it represents or why he choose what he did to symbolize his name. Glue the story to the back of the flag.
