Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Grades: K - 2

Write facts and details about the American flag with a Flag Day craft activity.

Celebrate Flag Day with an American Flag Craft

Flag Day is celebrated every June 14th and is a great time to celebrate our nation’s flag, who designed it and why. Students will also explore the meaning of colors in the stars and stripes.

This Flag Day Writing and Craft Activity is a great way to teach students about the history of our flag, how it came to be, and its symbolism.

Students will assemble an American flag and write facts about Old Glory on each of the white stripes.

✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors 

This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities. 

With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:

  • Strengthen finger and hand muscles
  • Build dexterity and fine motor skills
  • Improve hand-eye coordination
  • Develop focus and attention

And all of these skills are necessary to use a pencil and a fork; button a shirt and tie shoes; write, type and swipe.

Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!
