Celebrate Flag Day by making a simple flag and then coloring it in the style of the country of your choice. Click here to see a list of world flags.

You will need:

Paper
A stick, chopstick or straw
Tape 

How to do it:
Measure out a rectangle, 5 x 7 is a great size to match a straw.
Get your crayons, paints and markers. Trick out your flag to match a country or just go rouge and make one just the way you want it. Keep a small section of the flag for wrapping around the pole (½ works if you’re using a straw, etc.). Wrap the paper flag around the stick or straw, and tape in place.

Let your flag fly!
