There’s a lot of flag waving going on, with the World Cup in full play. There are also numerous national celebrations coming up in July, where more flags will take centre stage to help celebrate Canada Day, Independence Day in the US, and Bastille Day in France. Flag stones are a fun way to get kids involved in a little decorating for these occasions, and to learn about other nation’s flags, or at least that of their favourite soccer team.

Wash and dry some stones, and paint them in white. Other colours will show up better on a white base. Once dry, add in other colours to make your flag. Use a pencil to mark the various sections, or simply paint free hand. They can be used as a fun addition to your table decor, or even part of a treasure hunt.
