First assemble the base of your flag by gluing your popsicle sticks together to look like a fence {7 next to each and two across} Set aside to let it dry completely.


Now grab your blue cardstock and cut out a simple small rectangle to fit in the top left corner. Go ahead and glue it to the popsicle stick frame.


Once done, it’s time for the button stripes! One by one – have children glue their buttons on to the popsicle stick piece in rows of red and white. Repeat for each stripe. Set aside to let it all dry completely.
