Next, paint the white stripes with the red paint. This craft is great for young children because they don’t have to stay within the white lines.

After the paint dries, remove the Painter’s tape. You want to be careful when you take the tape off so you don’t tear the paper. After removing the tape, you have red and white stripes just like the American flag.

Then, cut a square out of the blue card stock and glue it in the corner of the white and red striped paper.
