Fall-Down Flag, Brendan Loper - Date - Date
Be the patriot. ‘Fall-Down Flag’ is made of felt and flannel. These fabrics form a naturally week bond. A flag of these materials hangs only for a moment before slowly succombing to gravity, the wind and other natural elements.
This double-sided activity kit accentuates the ritual of the flag. After all the elements fall we are left with a white field, reminiscent of a surrender flag. Stars, stripes, the blue unions must be collected and stored. The flag must be folded following Federal guidelines. The next day, and every subsequent day, it is to be reassembled and placed on the flagpole bracket.
Encourages fine motor development, counting and sorting skills, color recognition and story telling.
