It seems like all the summer holidays can use a great red, white and blue craft for the kids. This summer, we plan to keep the kids entertained with this kid's pom pom flag craft. It's easy and involves a bit of recycling too.

Kids Pom Pom Flag Craft Project

With little kids, it's easy to contain the mess if you start with setting all the supplies out early. We like this craft because the supply list is short and easy to gather. 

To make this we start with a good old cardboard box. I always encourage moms to keep a few of these on hand--it's pretty easy with all the Amazon deliveries we get. Thanks to the limitless cardboard supplies, we always have blank "canvases" to work with.


To help on this project, we enlisted master crafter Karimah Henry from the site

If you haven't checked out her site before do it ASAP. Karimah came up with a list of supplies and step-by-step instructions for creating this cool craft.
