Silvery Star Banners!

Silvery star banners!-01

Summer is full of national holidays, from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Next Friday, June 14th, is the anniversary of the adoption of the United States flag--otherwise known as Flag Day! Though it is not an official federal holiday, it is widely celebrated. Here's a fun flag-making idea for you to do with your children, at home or in the classroom, to commemorate it! 


Silvery Star Banners

These are great to do for Flag Day--and you can use them for other holidays, such as Independence Day and Labor Day, as well!



  • pictures of flags
  • star stickers
  • large blue paper
  • 8 1/2" x 11" paper
  • markers


What to Do

1. Show the children the flag; then, show them flags from other countries to compare colors and designs. Which one is their favorite? Which one is their least favorite?

2. Provide 50 stars and a large blue rectangle. Encourage the children to arrange and count the stars. Do they understand why there are 50 stars?

3. Invite the children to create their own flags or a family flag.


You can encourage the children to make multiple flags--and invite them to create their own fun holiday to celebrate with their flags, as well.This activity has been adapted from The GIANT Encyclopedia of Kindergarten Activities.
