|CREATE|world cup collage flags

 
Continuing our World Cup themed activities we've been making World Cup flags to decorate our house for the World Cup.
 

The first flag we made was a St Georges Cross, I cut strips of red paper and let T cut them up, he loves practising his cutting skills so this was a really good activity he could do from start to finish.
 

Using the glue I 'drew' a simple cross on our A4 white paper.
 

T then stuck the cut-up red paper onto the glue, it took me a few attempts to explain that he didnt need to stick them in a straight line and he could just stick them anywhere on the glue but we got there in the end, and with hindsight, it wouldn't really have mattered if they were in straight lines!!  (NOTE TO SELF: I think I need to allow him to interpret activities more rather than try and instruct him how to do them!)
 

Our second flag was the Brazil flag, because we were using more glue and a heavier decoration we used A4 green card, with more yellow rice from our sensory tray and a printed A4 Brazil flag (I just goggled A4 Brazil flag)
 

First I cut out the diamond shape from the printed flag and using a pencil I made a diamond on my green card, I then cut out the blue 'ordem progresso' circle from the printed flag and set aside.
 

I then covered the diamond with glue and stuck the blue circle in the middle.
 

T then placed handfuls of coloured rice onto the glue.
 

Once the glue was covered, we tipped off the rice and were left with another great World Cup flag.
 
Why don't you try and re-create your nations flag using these methods or any other collage methods, if you do we'd love to see them! This activity is not restricted to just World Cup nations, it's a fun activity to do for any country!
 
During June we will be concentrating on World Cup and Football themed activities have a look at our Brazil/World Cup Theme Pinterest Board for some ideas, Becky at 3princessesand1dude and I have been pinning here for a while now, so there's loads of ideas there.  I'll also be posting a few activities we do each week through June.

All of our football and world cup fun and activities can be found under our category boo box football or using #booboxfootball on twitter and Instagram
