Memorial Day Craft: Pom Pom American Flag

Looking for a craft for this Memorial Day? This will keep the younger kids entertained for a bit this weekend (or Monday afternoon)! Work on fine motor skills by having the children grasp clothes pins and stamp paint with pompoms in the shape of the American Flag!

  • White Construction Paper/ Cardstock
  • Red, White, and Blue Paint
  • Cotton Balls or Pom Poms
  • Clothes Pins/ Chip Clips (to keep fingers from getting paint on them)

Start by clipping each of the cotton balls or pom poms onto a clothes pin. Dip into whatever color you will start with. Stamp paint from ball to paper in a stripe (or square shape–if you’re starting with the star corner). Keep dipping and transferring paint until you’ve got an American Flag!

This is such a cool homemade craft that can be given to a relative/friend in the military or to someone who may have lost a loved one in the military.
