Making Flags for Independence Day
It’s been raining a lot lately and if you have no plans for Independence Day, why don’t you stay at home and make flags with your children?
I believe It’s never too early to introduce your children to the national symbols. Earlier this week I mentioned the child’s self, but as they grow different factors influence their development. It starts with the family, communities like neighborhood, school, church, and the nation.
My hope is that by guiding them while they are forming their national identity, they might be freed from the
burning legion corrupt that infests our country.
In celebration of the Philippine Independence, we made flags earlier this week. And my son started to call all flags Philippine Flag, I thought this might be a good way to change that.
He saw me coloring my flag really fast, I guess he wanted to be twice as fast by using two crayons.
I attached barbecue sticks to the flags but because I was not paying attention, glued mine upside down.
Removing the stick would tear my flag. I just broke the end and displayed it with the coloring pages, from Lost My Name, my son painted on last week.
It’s just a 10 minute activity, but having fun with your kid is the best part!
For older kids, how about making the other flags from the Philippine revolution?
