I used the printable to create this Mini American flag and star wand. We can't always use sparklers here in Colorado. Some years all fireworks have been banned due to super dry weather and a fire ban. So, when you can't have real sparkle, make your own! Glitter is a great second choice I think!

DIY American Flag and Paper Sparkler Wands

Instructions:

Use glitter glue and your favorite markers or crayons to color and decorate the page. Then cut out the pieces, tape or glue them to a wooden dowel (or straws work too) and then decorate the stick with sparkly chenille stems (pipe cleaners) and curly ribbon. You can make all kinds of cute wands the kids can play with for your Red, White and Blue celebrations! This is also a fun activity you can put together for the kids to make themselves.
