Recycled Canada Day Craft

Happy Birthday Canada! My homeland turns 144 today and to celebrate we made this Canadian flag craft out of Starbucks coffee sleeves. My son loved the sound of the crayons on the corrugated paper, and said it tickled his hand. Obviously it’s a fun multi-sensory project whether you celebrate Canada Day or not.

  1. Gather your materials. You will need 2-3 coffee sleeves, a red and grey crayon, glue, scissors ,pencil  and either a talent for drawing or a cookie cutter in the shape of a maple leaf .
  2. Start by tracing the leaf with a pencil.
  3. Time to color with red. I loved the reaction to this , he was kinda shocked at first then the giggles started. My daughter who was chillin’ eating watermelon in her booster started giggling too. It was a moment.
  4. Make the pole by coloring another grey.
  5. Time to cut.
  6. Add the glue.
  7. Pop the pieces on
  8. Let dry.
