American Flag on a Pencil Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

As a boring old grown-up I sometimes have to remind myself that the projects I've seen and done with a zillion Brownie troops are still exciting for the kids.  This is one of them.  Something about creating your own little flag to wave during a picnic or parade is great fun!

Tip:  Older children and adults can use sharpened pencils (and use them as pencils - the flag is a fun pencil topper), but young children should use an unsharpened pencil or straw so that they don't accidentally use the pointy end of their flag as a weapon.
