An American Mosaic: Paper Flag Collage

An American Mosaic: Paper Flag Collage

To celebrate 4th of July, here's a great craft to get your kiddos in the spirit! Outside of being fun to make, tearing up paper is great fine-motor exercise and adding the stars is practice in counting up to 50. You can also use the opportunity to talk about the symbolism of the various elements of the flag.
