Patriotic Spinner

Red, White and Blue spinner kids can make.

Kids can make this Patriotic Spinner craft into a great family party decoration. In 2020 when many of our celebrations are suspended, decorations like these spinners are a great way to share your patriotism with all who pass your home. Hang them outside and watch them spin!

Trivia:

Upon welcoming Vermont and Kentucky—states 14 and 15—into the union, a new version of the flag was created that had 15 stars and 15 stripes.
