DIY Star Spangled Banner For Kids

As a grandmother I love making crafts with my grand kids. July 4th is a special holiday especially for kids. I try to share a bit of history with them. In these star spangled banner for kids craft we used red, white and blue construction paper, along with stars, hearts and paint. I used leftover paint from DecoArt. I had cookie cutters of stars and hearts and they work great as a stencil. Use as much free stuff as you can to save moneys my motto.


  • Construction paper: Use red, white and blue
  • Paint: Use red, white and blue paint
  • Cookie Cutter: I used cookie cutter in shapes of heart and stars
  • String: Ribbon or string
  • Tape
  • Paper Plates
  • Hole puncher

How To Make The Star Spangled Banner For Kids

I will be making 5 tails. I take the red, white and blue construction paper and fold in half and them along the folded line.

Fold the two pieces that you cut in half. Cut those pieces on the fold line. Repeat that and cut at an angle to form a tail.

Take the hole puncher and make two holes for the string, one on each side of the tail.

Now get the paint and pour it into the paper plate. I gathered some cookie cutters to use as a stencil. Press the cookie cutter onto the paint and then press evenly on the paper. Use blue paint for red paper, red paint on white paper, blue paint on red paper.
