Celebrate Independence Day by making this easy cardboard Philippine flag with your little ones!
In honor of Independence Day on June 12 in the Philippines, my son and I decided to partake in a meaningful celebration. Channeling our creativity, we embarked on a project to craft a Philippine flag using recycled cardboard.
This eco-friendly approach not only allowed us to pay homage to our country’s independence but also contributed to a sustainable and resourceful crafting experience. The process of transforming humble cardboard into a representation of the Philippine flag became a symbolic and enjoyable way to commemorate this significant day.
My son took on the vibrant task of coloring each piece of cardboard, using our Carioca Temperello from Pandie to infuse the colors of the Philippine flag. It was more than just a crafting session; it became a wonderful opportunity to introduce him to his Filipino culture and the significance of the national flag.
The lively colors on the cardboard not only reflected the visual essence of the Philippine flag but also added a personal touch to our celebration. Crafting together provided a meaningful way to connect with our heritage while creating lasting memories.
How to create a cardboard Philippine flag:
- Recycled cardboard
- Carioca Temperello poster sticks
- Glue gun and stick
- Sketch the flag outline on the cardboard to get started.
- Cut the outlined flag into three parts.
- Cut the sun and stars from the cardboard.
- Add color to each piece.
- Attach the sun and stars by gluing them onto the white-colored cardboard.
- Attach the chopstick to the left side of the cardboard using glue.
- Get another cardboard of the same size as the whole flag.
- Apply glue to the white, blue, and red pieces, positioning them on top of the second cardboard.
- Secure the chopstick to the back part of the flag.
