  • a paper cup

  • scissors
  • a white plastic bag
  • a red plastic bag
  • cellophane tape
  • a chopstick
  • a rubber band
  1. Paint the paper cup red. Let dry.
  2. While the paper cup is drying, cut out a white crescent moon and five small white stars. Also cut 5 x 0.5 inch strips from the red and white plastic bags to make streamers. You’ll want to have enough to go round the narrower circumference of the cup.
  3. Cut out the bottom of the cup.
  4. Paste on two white sticker labels leaving a space of red in between each.
  5. Paste the crescent moon and stars on the red section.
  6. Secure the streamers all around the narrower circumference of the cup with cellophane tape.
  7. Poke a chopstick through from bottom to top. Secure the bottom with a rubber band to prevent the cup from slipping through.
  8. Bring it out and catch the breeze! Happy National Day!
