- Styrofoam, or paper cup
- Paint (colors of your country)
- Paint brush
Paint an outline of your flag on the cup.
For our example, we painted on tow large red stripes for the outer sides of the Canadian flag.
Continue with your painting of the flag, by filling in your outlines.
For us, we added the maple leaf in the center.
If there is detailed areas on the flag it is helpful to use a pencil first to sketch it out.
Some countries will be very easy to make. Places like France or Italy, it is a simple three stripes.
A more complicated flag is the United States. This one is good to use a pencil to outline.
- Create your stripes. You will need 13 all together (7 red, 6 white)
- Color in a blue square at the top.
- Once your blue area is dry, draw on 50 stars.
