The theme for this week’s Unplugged Project was flag. I had a few ideas of my own, but left this one totally up to the kids.
They chose to make their own personal flags.
My 8 year-old daughter made a flag that represented herself (and hung it on her bedroom door). Each item and color represented something, just like in a real flag. My favorite were the glasses (yellow – middle of right hand side) which apparently is the symbol for herself. She has had glasses since age 1 so I guess they are very much a part of who she is:
My 6 year-old son drew a picture of a country that he invented, and made a flag to go with it. The country is called “Cat World.” Considering the name, I’m not sure why there are no cats on the flag or the picture!:
They drew and used construction paper to create their flags. You could get fancier and cut pictures out of magazines, or do “mixed media” flags if you want.
We kept it simple this week though, and spent the rest of our afternoon flying a kite in the fall wind and playing Triominos.
Did you do a flag project this week? If so, then please link to your project (specific project post please, rather than blog in general) in Mr. Linky below. If not, then read more about the Unplugged Project and consider joining in next week!
