My kids love when we celebrate with an Educational Carnival Party. This easy flag craft is a lot of fun to wave around, but it can also be used as a Preschool color matching activity! Here’s how I made mine…
To make your Carnival Party Flags you’ll need:
(Please do not copy without permission.)
Wood Craft Dowels, or skewers (sharp points cut off if needed)
Optional: Colored Star Stickers
To make your carnival flag, simply cut the flag printable in half so each child gets one flag outline. Color your flag and cut it out. Make sure you tell your children not to cut on the middle line because you are going to fold in it half to make a triangle shape. Put glue on the back of your flag, especially in the middle of the diamond shape. Place a dowel in the middle so that it does not stick up above the flag and fold the flag in half around the dowel. Set it aside to dry.
To play a color matching game, have your children match colored sticker stars to same colors on their flag, (see Audrey’s flag above). After they are done matching, you could also have them count how many stickers of each color they have.
Let the flag waving begin!
What colors would your children make their flags?
*Please do not leave your children unattended with their flags. Dowels could be a hazard to young children. Use thicker dowels to reduce the chance of injury.
