We have been learning about American symbols the last few weeks. Last week we each made a torch like the Statue of Liberty holds.
It isn't fancy but the kids really enjoyed making them. All you need is a styrofoam cut, piece of aluminum foil, a piece of paper and some yellow and orange tissue paper. Punch out the bottom of the cup. Take a square of aluminum foil and place the cup in the center. I pre-cut the foil to be the correct size. Wrap the cup with the foil and punch out the foil bottom. Roll a piece of paper and insert it in the hole to be the handle. Finally add tissue paper for the flames.
