Patriotic Centerpiece Kids Craft


Oh the grand red, white and blue! Have your children create this Patriotic Centerpiece craft and display it for both Memorial Day and for The 4th of July.

Classified: Easy and is great for ages 4 and up.

What you need:
  • Toilet paper towel roll
  • Red, white, yellow and blue paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Red and blue construction paper
  • White tissue paper
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Fat pencil or marker
  • Paint brushes and palette

What to do:
1.    Preparation: Cut thin strips of red and blue paper as well as small stars.
2.    Paint the toilet paper towel tube white and allow time to dry.
3.    My children added red, blue and yellow dots with their fingers.
4.    Paint the Popsicle sticks yellow and set aside to dry.
5.    Take the strips of red and blue paper and twist them around the fat pencil or marker to make it curl. Repeat as needed. This is a great way to practice those fine-motor skills.
6.    Glue the stars on to the top of the yellow Popsicle sticks. 
7.    Once all parts are dry, place some white tissue paper into the decorated paper tube. Arrange the stars and stripes accordingly.

  2. Oh, these are so cute. Grandma and Grandpa are coming for lunch on the 4th so it would be great to have kid created centerpieces! I think I can adapt this to my 3 year old's craft level. Oh, and I pinned this too!
