How many flags of different countries are you able to recognize? Do you know what the different colors and shapes on the flag are meant to represent?
Using some paper and some crayons, make your very own flag of your country! Or, make up a flag to represent something that is important to you -- maybe a special flag for your soccer team, or a flag to represent your family!
Think about what colors and shapes best represent the group of people your flag is going to represent. Get some friends to make their own special flags too, and then see if you can find some sticks on the ground outside so that you can carry your flags and have your own special parade!
