If you’re looking for something patriotic that you can make with your children try this “Felt Build-a-Flag” by Linda. Linda of “Little Family Fun” is a wife and mom of four children, 3 boys and one girl. She started her blog in 2009; right after her second baby was born. With a new baby she struggled with what to do with her oldest besides putting him in front of the TV all day. Through the advice of a good friend, she started spending time with him doing simple crafts, activities, and just having fun together. She listened to the advice and created a blog dedicated to creating simple ideas for teacher’s parents and children. She has a nice pictorial tutorial for you to follow along and this is a really cute idea and you could use these in several ways for decorations or even placemats. Thanks Linda for giving us ideas that keep our children away from computers and iPads and TV! TUTORAL HERE!
