Looking for a simple craft your kids can do to celebrate the upcoming 4th of July holiday? This American flag suncatcher craft supports fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and artistic development. Plus, kids get a kick out of seeing their artwork on display!
Note: For more patriotic printables, see my 4th of July activities page.
To make an American flag suncatcher, you will need the following materials:
My kids began by cutting out the inside of a sheet of black construction paper to make a frame for their flags. I then helped them to fill the frame with contact paper.
We laid the frame on the table with the sticky side of the contact paper facing up. I provided my kids with an image of the American flag, and they used small squares of tissue paper to fill in the flag.
When they were done, I hung their American flag suncatchers on our back door, which was perfect for catching the afternoon sun.
I hope you enjoy the 4th of July!
