Star-Spangled Wavers

We made this really fun craft yesterday so I just had to share it with you all! The kids had a great time waving them all around while watching the fireworks!

Pieces of red, white, and blue felt
Red, white, and blue ribbons (available at local craft stores)
Tacky glue
3/8-inch dowel
Time needed: 30 Minutes or Less

1. Cut a pair of 6-inch stars from red, white, or blue felt.

2. Cut a slightly smaller pair (ours were 4 inches across) from a different color of felt, and an even smaller pair (ours were 3 inches across) from the third color.

3. Use tacky glue to affix the stars to each other. Glue together the 2 sets of stars, sandwiching a 3/8-inch dowel between them.

4. Allow the glue to dry, then finish the baton by tying a length of red, white, and blue ribbon around the dowel.

I found this awesome, fun and easy craft here!
