American Flag Fan Printout (**or 3 printouts for circle fan), crayons/markers/color pencils, scissors, tape, glue, and popsicle sticks.
Cut along the OUTSIDE thick black lines to provide a skinny American Flag.
Fold the flag, short side, in a zig-zag pattern so it looks like an accordion when complete. Start with the uncolored side first.
Glue the top half of the popsicle sticks on the inside of one end of the American Flag accordion, making sure the paper wraps around the popsicle stick. Then tape the fan template ends together around the popsicle stick for a small perfect Patriotic Fan!!
**My little one wanted a circle fan! You will need to color and cut 3 Flag Templates, fold them and glue them together at the ends matching the uncolored side of the fan.
Glue the top half of the popsicle sticks on the inside of the striped end of the 3 printout accordions - making sure the paper wraps around the popsicle sticks.
Tape the blue stars end of the American Flag accordion together. Bring the two popsicle sticks next to each other and tape together to make the perfect Patriotic Flag!!
Fan yourself and your family and help them cool off!
