The South Carolina State Flag
On extra hot (or cold) days, crafting is a great way to entertain children. My sweet friend has one of these 'flags' in her house that the children made at school. Creating our own was so fun! You can always find things around your house to create something beautiful! My son Mason adds some finishing touches to the 'sky' in our mosaic!
We found some old magazines and flipped through the pages for colors of blue. After we accumulated several ones, my children tore the blue pages into very small pieces. We also tore some white pages to make the moon and the palmetto tree. With a simple glue stick, we preceeded to glue the 'mosaic' together! Note in the above picture, I also printed my children's names from the computer and encrypted them into the piece of art! You can see 'Ashlyn' written on the moon before we surrounded it with magazine pieces!
I printed the template from the computer (click here.) and took it to an office supply store to enlarge. You can find just about any kind of printable on the computer!
It looks so pretty against the white frame and my children are so proud of their 'masterpiece!'
