Where did your family go this summer? Here’s a great project to teach your kids about Geography, Traveling, US States and to remember their summer holiday! All you need is some felt and sequins from Hygloss. With just some imagination your whole family can have fun with this end of summer project; “DIY Travel Pennants”.
-Felt Glue or Kid Friendly Glue – For working with Kids always use Kid Friendly Glues.
-Other; Craft Scissors, Letters (printed to trace and cut felt letters)
Cut a triangle shape into two different pieces of felt. Make sure the second triangle shape is shorter then the first one. About 1/2 inch. Then cut two small felt strips for the end of the pennant. (see photo)
Print a sheet of 2 inch sized letters from computer and cut out. Then trace the cut letters onto felt, cut again. Pick the letters for the state or town you visited.
Choose an iconic symbol that you feel represents the place you visited. Draw onto the felt and cut.
Assemble your pennant. Layer the two triangle shapes and two strips shapes and secure with glue. Then Add your letters and icons to the pennant. Secure with glue.
Add sequins or rhinestones to your pennant with more glue. Let dry.
How easy was that? So simple and so much fun. Imagine all the pennants you can make? In addition to traveling, you could make team sport, ball leagues, school spirit, and local town pennants. Such a great project for all ages to do. This could even become a family tradition after every vacation.
