First we cut out stars with our new star hole puncher. Hey I knew those would come in handy! We counted 50!
Then we made 50 glue marks with a toothpick that had been dipped in glue. It was easier to make the glue dots smaller this way. Here is Baby Bird
Then, we cut out 7 strips of red construction paper. Baby Bird liked to play with these by flipping them all around.
We helped Baby Bird glue them on to the white construction paper. He concentrated very hard on making sure they were pasted down tightly enough! Baby Bird enjoyed counting the stripes in English and ironically also in German.
After waiting a bit to dry, we were done!
We hung it on our window to make our German neighbors
We had wanted to also make a German flag but Baby Bird has a cold right now and took an early AND long nap today so we will perhaps do this soon and I can update this post.
