I cannot believe that the 4th of July is next week! How have we already blown through a month of summer vacation? My boys and I are loving our time together and have been crafting at least once a week and sometimes more.
Today we have a very simple popsicle flag craft to share with you and get in the mood for some 4th of July celebrations. This was such an easy and inexpensive kids craft to make because it used all materials that we had on hand here at home. I love projects that do not really cost me anything to make like this or our Bottle Top Bug magnets that we shared a few weeks ago.
You can use these popsicle flag decorations in your favorite flowers, on a wreath, decorating your 4th of July dinner table or string a bunch together and make a fun garland. The uses for these little flags are endless!
