This Flag is Your Flag!

This flag was made for you and me!

Celebrate the 4th of July with a tactile flag!

This easy to make flag can be made any size, and with a variety of materials. Here, we used a rectangular piece of white posterboard, strips of red felt, blue glitter paper and gold glitter star foam stickers. Kids can safely adhere the felt and glitter paper to the board with school glue first, then add as many stars as you want! Add a flag pole or handle using tape and a small dowel, or just hang it up on the wall- within reach to touch, of course!

A great early July activity for children! Tactile pieces allow blind and low vision children to feel the stars and stripes.
