Independence Day Indian flag crafts

My daughter loves making Indian flags. So this time we tried another simple way to make Indian flag to celebrate the upcoming Independence Day. She has recently done q-tip painting in her school, so we applied the same technique to make this flag. Q-tip in simple language is the ear-bud that is available in every bathroom cabinet. This technique is simple and non-messy for young kids to handle.

Make Indian flag using q-tip painting

What you need:

White construction paper

Acrylic paints

Color palette



Draw an Indian flag on white construction paper.

Mix saffron, white and green colour on colour palette.

Ask your child to dip the q-tip in saffron colour and make dots to colour the top of the flag.

Similarly, ask the child to make dots to colour white and green parts of the flag.

Once the paint is dried, then ask your child to make blue dots for Ashok chakra.

Once the flag is completely dry, add a craft stick to make the mast of the flag.




Make Indian flag craft using torn paper

Indian flag crafts are always a favourite when you want to do India-themed crafts. They provide instant connection with the occasion to kids and they are easy to make. We had also made a simple Indian flag craft for Republic Day. We had used torn coloured paper to make the flag.
