Kids enjoy all kinds of crafting and making flag crafts for kids encourages them to learn about Independence Day and what it means.
After they’ve created their flag crafts, kids can use them in celebrating the 4th of July, Memorial Day, or Flag Day.
Most of these flag crafts are pretty simple, and older kids can create them without much adult help. Younger kids can make them, too, with some assistance.
