1. Students used liquid watercolor paint to paint 4 sticks. They used a papertowel to dab them dry.
2. Two sticks were placed on paper, and I gave a squirt of white glue on each as shown.
3. Students started with red, and alternated 4 red sticks and 3 “white” across on the glue. Some stick was left on both sides.
4. White punched paper stars were glued on navy blue rectangles of paper, 1.25" x 2". A glue stick works best any extra dries clear.
5. The “flagpole” is glued on the bottom left stick with white glue. All is left to dry for about 20 minutes. A quickie drawing lesson filled the time for me.
6. Before students left, I used a good adult scissors to trim off the extra stick on the right. I liked the homemade look to them, and just in time for Memorial Day celebrations.
