We love these heart shaped American Flags made by @2art.chambers on Instagram, a fun and easy project everyone can participate in!

Materials needed:

A canvas: any paper works great! You can use construction, sketch pad, even computer paper, it won’t bleed through! Or, try Cardboard - recycle a cereal box or boxes from deliveries, and cut them into any shape you want.

Kwik Stix/Thin Stix: grab your Red, White, and Blue Kwik or Thin Stix. It’s that easy!
