I came across this activity of Star Spangled Wavers on spoonful.com. I knew this would be fun for the kids to have during the Grand Old 4th Parade and Celebration in downtown Pasco.
Star Spangled Wavers
- red, white and blue felt – only $0.23 per piece at Walmart
- red, white & blue ribbon
- hot glue & Gun (not pictured above)
- skewers or dowels
Trace and cut 3 stars out of 3 different colors of felt felt: 6 inches, 4 inches and 2 inches wide.
Hot glue the dowel to the biggest star, then glue the medium star by sandwiching the dowel.
Glue the small star on top and allow time to dry. Once everything is dry you can tie the ribbon around the dowel! There you have it!
The Grand Old 4th Parade is at 10 at Memorial Park in Pasco, I hope to see you there!
