4th of July Handprint Flag


These 4th of July Handprint Flags made such a fun and easy craft to celebrate Independence Day! 

I pulled out some red and blue tempera paint and white card stock, showed the little ones how to paint one hand with the paint, and then let the older girls take over helping them with the art project while I got back to work in the kitchen. 





He ran back to his bedroom to bring out his copy of Our Flag so he could count the red stripes and make sure he painted the correct number. 





A certain little Texas lovin' boy wanted to:
 "make a TEXAS FLAG too, because my Godmudder and Godfadder live in Texas!!!" 



Even the big kids couldn't resist joining the finger painting fun. The white card stock wasn't quite big enough for their flags. They used 12"x18" white construction paper



🎶You’re a grand old flag, You’re a high flying flag, And forever in peace may you wave.🎶 

Happy Independence Day!
