Here you’ll find steps to make and Easy Burns night craft to celebrate Burns night.  Burns night is about celebrating Scottish poet, Robert Burns, born in 1759, and his many Scots Poems.  Burns night celebrations usually have a supper and is usually celebrated around the poet’s birthday (25 Jan) every year.

Because Robert Burns was Scottish, we are going to make an easy Scottish Flag Burns Night Craft.

Step 1

You will need to make a rectangle shape for the flag shape.  Use the blue construction paper as the base and the Scottish flag is mainly blue.  Using the white construction paper and scissors you will need to make a diagonal cross shape.  Glue the white diagonal cross shape on top of the blue paper.  The middle of the cross should be in the middle of the blue paper. See flag below.
