11 Flag Craft For Kids

Oh, the weather outside is frightful (for some of us), but the fire is so delightful. 

What better way to stay warm than by doing some indoor crafting? 

These flag crafts for kids are a fun way to teach your little ones about other countries and cultures, or just to brush up on their history.

USA Flag

Materials:

  • Red, white and blue paint (or markers)
  • Red and blue paper
  • Paper plates for the flag’s stripes
  • Straws for the flag’s stripes (or you can use ribbons)
  • String for sewing on the USA Flag design to the straws or ribbons (you may also want to cut out small pieces of cardboard to help keep things straight and lined up)
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue (you may also want some extra glue sticks available)

British Flag

Materials needed:

  • red, white, and blue construction paper
  • glue
  • scissors
  • a straw to use as the flagpole

How to make it:

  • Fold your construction paper in half lengthwise, then fold it in half again so that you have two halves. Cut out the Union Jack (the British flag) using one of the four triangles on each side of your folded piece of paper. Cut out two more pieces of red and blue construction paper using only one triangle from each side of your folded piece of paper (you’ll need four cuts total). Use these pieces to decorate your flagpole with stripes! You can also decorate it with yellow stars if you want! It’s up to you! You can also add some flowers around the base if you want something pretty for display purposes or just for fun! And don’t forget about our lovely queen – Victoria!’

French Flag

You will need:

  • Paper (white or colored)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Colored pencils (optional)

Italian Flag

The Italian flag is a tricolor of green, white, and red. It is also commonly called the tricolor. The official proportions of this flag have been standardized by Italian law and are 5:8 (1:2). The green represents hope, liberty, equality, and fraternity; the white represents faith, purity, and peace; while the red stands for unity against violence, bloodshed in war, or revolution. The colors were originally adopted from France’s national flag after Napoleon Bonaparte led an invasion into Italy in 1796—an act that was later reversed by his brother Louis Bonaparte.[4]

The Italian flag is a symbol of Italian nationalism due to its history as being worn by revolutionaries against Austrian rule during unification efforts in 1848.[5] Its use dates back as early as 1806 when Napoleon Bonaparte relinquished control over all of Italy following his defeat at Austerlitz.[6]

Brazilian Flag

You can do a lot with the Brazilian flag.

  • Craft a Brazilian flag by using green paper, yellow paint, and blue glitter glue. Cut out the diamond shape from the center of your paper and attach it to your cardboard or foam board base with hot glue or double-sided tape. Once you have glued your diamond in place, fill it with yellow paint using a small brush or sponge applicator. Add blue stars to each corner of your flag and voila! You’ve made yourself an awesome-looking craft that looks like Brazil’s national symbol!

German Flag

  • German Flag

This flag is a big one, so you may want to split it up into sections and work on each part separately. You can either use tape or staples to hold the pieces together when you’re done.

Greek Flag

The Greek flag is a tricolor featuring three equal horizontal bands of blue (top), white and red. The blue band symbolizes the sky, the white stripes symbolize purity of sacrifice and the red stripe symbolizes the blood of the Greek people. This flag was adopted in 1822 after Greece gained independence from Ottoman rule and became a monarchy under King Otto of Bavaria who ruled until 1862. This was a popular flag for many years but it fell out of favor when Otto was overthrown by revolutionaries in 1863.

During World War II, when Greece was occupied by Nazi Germany, some Greeks flew this flag as resistance against their occupiers whereas others flew fascist flags or swastikas instead. After World War II ended and Greece became communist under dictator Colonel George Papadopoulos (1967–1973), he outlawed all non-communist flags including this one; however, he allowed it again once democracy returned after his fall from power in 1973.

Russian Flag

Materials:

  • A pillowcase (or similar) with the appropriate size for your flag. If you don’t have one, you can use a towel or some other piece of fabric and make cuts to fit the design.
  • Paper, cardboard, and tape/glue for construction
  • Ribbon to hang your flag on (optional)
  • Fold your pillowcase in half so that the opening is on top and pin it in place. Cut out two sides of the shape you want to make, leaving at least an inch around the edge. You can trace a picture or just wing it! If you’re using a towel or other piece of fabric like I did above simply cut out a triangle from each side as shown below:
  • Next, attach fabric onto each side of one end by taping or gluing them together where they meet up at this point along with any other seams that need to be secured before moving on to step 3 below (see example below):

Indian Flag

The Indian flag is red, white, and green with a large blue wheel in the middle. This symbolizes the unity between Hindus and Muslims during the struggle for independence from British rule. The wheel has 24 spokes on it, representing each of India’s states and territories.

Japan Flag

This flag craft is great for kids who enjoy art and learning about our country. We’ll be making a Japanese flag that they can take home with them when they’re finished!

Materials:

  • red and white paper (or fabric)
  • red paint (or acrylic paint)
  • white glue or hot glue gun

Process:

  • Cut out two rectangular pieces of red paper, making sure they are larger than the size of your child’s hand. You can use construction paper or even old clothing if you don’t have any lying around! Cut one piece slightly smaller than the other so both ends will overlap when folded over each other. This will create a nice fringe effect once painted on both sides with white glue/acrylic paint later on in this project

Australian flag

The Australian flag is a blue ensign with the Union Jack in the top left corner, and the Southern Cross constellation in the right half, five white stars on a blue disk. It was adopted in 1901 and is a symbol of unity for all Australians.

The flag has changed since its introduction by only one thing: In 1912, New Zealand became part of Australia, so their flags were altered to include the Union Jack as well. (New Zealand still had its own flag until 1973.)

10 Fun And Easy Crafts For Kids To Make This Summer

Flag Craft For Kids

Make a flag out of pipe cleaners

Materials: Pipe cleaners, paper (optional), scissors.

Instructions: Take the pipe cleaners and lay them on top of each other so that they make a rectangle shape. Cut the paper into strips and wrap them around one end of your pipe cleaner bundle to create your stripes. If you want to get fancy, use different colors for each stripe! Make sure you cut long enough pieces so that they don’t tear off when you bend it over itself or try to move it around too much because if this happens then we’ll just have to start over again!
