Fourth of July Tissue Flags

Fourth of July Tissue Flag Kids Craft! The kids will have tons of fun making these colorful flags!

Looking for a fun and quick Fourth of July Kids craft for the kiddos next week? If so, I have an easy and fun idea for you.

Last year, my friend Laura came over with her kiddos for a playdate. She brought some tissue paper and a blank American flag for the kids to turn into Fourth of July Tissue Flags. I thought it was a brilliant idea. In fact, I liked it so much that I bought the supplies to make it with all the cousins at last year’s family reunion, which was over the Fourth. All the kids loved it, and it was nice to have something for them to work on while the adults got dinner ready. The supplies for the craft cost just a buck or two, which makes it even better. What I loved most about this craft was that it gave me a good opportunity to teach the kiddos a little bit more about Independence Day and the American flag. :)

Cute, right? I promise this will keep the kids entertained for awhile next week, and it even helps them with their motor skills, so what’s not to love?!

SUPPLIES:

– American Flag Sheet (below)

– Glue

– Pencil/Pen

– Red, White and Blue Tissue Paper cut into small squares

3. Wrap tissue paper around the end of a pencil, add a little glue to the end (we poured our glue into a small bowl and just let them dip it a bit) and add to your sheet. Show the kids where each color goes to help out a bit. :)
