Family Day: Design Your Own Flag

A craft table with a yellow rectangle of felt with a red heart, blue circle, and yellow triangle on it

Drop by for the continuation of our "Create-a-Country" series of Family Days. Dream, vision, and build imaginary countries, designed by kids and inspired by ideas and artworks presented throughout the Smart Museum this spring. 

This Saturday, design and make your imaginary country’s flag. Flags display many meanings and use symbols, color, and graphic design to show what a country aspires to be. Become a junior vexillographer and create your flag using felt, scissors, and glue.  

FREE, drop-in. Art-making supplies and other materials are provided. Family programs are best for kids 4–12, but all ages are welcomed! Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.


Family Days at the Smart Museum are designed to celebrate the creative potential in all of us. With new projects every month, Family Days offer opportunities for kids and their caregivers to create together and connect with one another. Each program is unique, fun, and free, emphasizing invention, improvisation, and hands-on creativity.
