Materials needed:

  • Red, White, and Blue Wikki Stix
  • Flag Template – print here
  • Scissors
  • Assorted Mixed Media Items to decorate the flag (suggestions might include: white paper or foil stars, pompoms, paper straws, pony beads, fabric scraps, or craft feathers)

Print the flag template for each of the kids. Have the kids use the Patriotic colors of Wikki Stix to outline the template. Kids can then fill-in the blue area of the flag with additional blue Wikki Stix and create the 7 red stripes and 6 white stripes (see photo). Note – the ends of the red/white Wikki Stix stripes can be cut with scissors to make a straight edge within the flag template.

After the kids have finished creating the basic flag, invite them to make an original mixed media design by pressing assorted Patriotic-colored items onto the Wikki Stix. No glue or tape will be necessary as the Wikki Stix will hold the items in place. Each flag craft will be as unique as the child who created it!

The Wikki Stix mixed media flag crafts make great Patriotic displays on Labor Day (or ANY Patriotic holiday)! The flag creations are durable and can be stored inside a plastic bag at room temperature for future holiday display!
