Sandcastle flags

June 17, 2010

I know any idiot can make these, but Martha has been banging on about having flags for the sandcastles in her sandpit for some time and I finally gave in so here they are. We used some dayglo paper we had knocking about and some straws, I cut the ‘bend’ off most of them but one got put into the sand pit before I got the scissors to it and in practice having a pose-able flag is pretty nifty. We used Martha’s pinking safety scissors which barely made it through the paper (so safe they are not functioning scissors!) to make them look a bit fluttery – tip, cut them folded through a double layer of paper to make sure the edges match up.  We had a plan to draw on the flags with the markers, but Martha managed a wiggle on one before deciding they were finished.
