Cut a rectangular shape out of your white construction paper. Hold the rectangle so that it appears horizontal instead of vertical. Place it in front of you and begin.
Measure about one inch wide on either side of the rectangle. Paint that inch wide all the way down to the bottom so that you have a strip of red on either side of your Canadian flag.
Place a maple leaf stencil in the middle of your rectangle and paint it red. If you don't have a maple leaf stencil, you can use a real maple leaf or copy the design on the flag above.
Set the flag aside to dry.
Glue the top half of a popsicle stick to the back of the left side of the flag. This will serve as the flagpole and a way for you to hold on to the flag and wave it around.
