Make this Independence Day Craft while reading these Fun Patriotic Books:

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Flag Heart Shapes

For each flag you will need:

  • 1 red heart
  • 1 blue semi-circle
  • 3 white stars
  • 4 white stripes
heart flag craft template ready for cutting
print template and staple to multiple sheets of paper before cutting

Once you have the print outs, staple them to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you’ve cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Also, it might be easier to cut the white strips a little longer than the heart. Then you can trim them after the children glue them to the red heart.

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will just need to glue it all together!

Heart shaped American flag craft for preschoolers
  1. Start with the red heart.
  2. Glue the blue semi-circle to the top left portion of the heart.
  3. Glue the white stars onto the blue semi-circle.
  4. Glue on the white stripes (this can be a little tricky, rotate the stripes until they fit best).
  5. Don’t forget to write your name on the back.

And you’re finished!

It took me about 10 minutes to have the supplies for 20 kids. How amazing is that?!

Now you’re ready to take your American Flag craft to your event. This would be a great craft for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Veterans Day, preschool, elementary, Scouts or just a fun school party idea.

      1. Hi! When I learned how to staple the templates to the paper, I was so excited! I’m glad the tips are working for you too. Thanks for the great comment. Have a wonderful day.

      1. Hi Michele,
        I just sent you an email, are you having problems downloading the template or printing it? Please let me know the exact problem and I’ll be happy to help! Thanks

          1. Hi Sue,
            The way the website works is that it sends every template via email. This means that I need your email address every time so I know which template you want. I can understand that it might be frustrating, but it’s the only way I can send the template to you. Thanks for understanding. Have a great day! ~Jeannie
