Flag Craft!

Olympics Flag Craft

We are in Vancouver and loving the Olympic spirit and pride all countries have in their athletes and countries.  My son is luckier than most he has two countries and is being raised to love both. We made this Canadian flag craft to cheer my country on, and grabbed our American flag we made and kept ( one of the few crafts I have kept for a long time) to cheer Daddy’s country. No matter what flag you are making remember it doesn’t have to be perfect just have fun!

  1. Gather your materials. You will need some cardboard, red paint ( I had blue because I wasn’t sure if we’d make an American one too), white paper, a roller paint brush, glue,marker,  and scissors. Flag
  2. Make two lines to define the red and white sections of your flag. Flag
  3. Add your red paint and start rolling. My son likes to pretend to be a steam roller and loves any craft with this brush! Flag
  4. Keep going, don’t worry if you get some in the middle, you will be covering it with white paper anyway.Flag
  5. Roll your paint on your child’s hand.Flag
  6. Press. FlagFlag
  7. Give them some scrap paper to make more hand prints, this will get some excess off and it’s fun! Flag
  8. Fill your sink and let them play- it’s way easier to get your little one’s hands clean than scrubbing, and they have fun playing with the water while their hand print dries. Flag
  9. When the print is dry add glue. Flag
  10. Add your hand print and let dry.  Olympics Flag Craft

    I love his Canadian flag. My girls enjoyed watching the opening ceremony and looking at all of the flags. They like to compare their flag (USA) with others. Our neighbor is an immigrant from Poland, so they are cheering for Poland, too.

    Just wanted to let you know that I have an award on my photo blog for you (Twice As Many Moments). I especially love the songs you share (so do my toddlers!) and you help give me some great ideas for crafts to help my two children learn new things. It has been a great way to spend quality time with them.
