Learn how to make an American Flag out of popsicle sticks. This craft is great for any patriotic celebration your troop may be celebrating or for a flag ceremony. You can learn through directions and pictures and a short video showing how to do it. Let’s get started!

For this craft you will need

  • White cookie decorative stars

  • Glue

  • Thin stick

  • Red, white and blue color

  • Popsicle sticks

How to make craft

  • Take the sticks and start painting them. Paint three red, two white and two blue sticks.
    Leave them to dry completely before you continue decorating.
  • Take the sticks and start creating the flag. You will need one clear stick on the back side to attach the other sticks. First you will need red stick, then white, another red and continue that order until you reach the end.
  • Now for the blue part cut the blue sticks on half. You will need three halves of them.
  • Glue them on the left upper corner.
  • Add some white stars on it. I’ve used stars for decorating cookies but you can
    use some pearl stars or maybe stars from cardboard.
  • To finish the look of the flag just add the wooden thin stick on the left side on the back.
  • Completed Flag Craft

Crafts Beyond Flag Craft

Troop 1808 Service Project on Flag Day

What out new troop 1808 of Daisies and Brownie’s did was on Flag Day we went and put flags on a historic Family Confederates grave yard that is a small cemetery in the neighborhood that is forgotten about as it small, the family big party of our Community and but graveyard not publicized as much as house and courthouse that is associated with the family. We did a lesson on family and how even this small graveyards are an important part of history and should not be forgotten it’s a part of our community history and made out community what it is today. We also discussed what flag laying was and importance of being respectful of placement of flags and how to handle a flag. Here is the picture that was shared in our local newspaper the Greensburg Record Herald in Greensburg, KY.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
