Memorial Day Flag

on May 26, 2012

In honor of Memorial why not create a really special flag by using your kids handprints?  You will need

Red, white and blue washable paint

Paint brushes

Paper plates

Bucket of Warm Water

Paper towels

Large Piece of Cardboard or Construction Paper

Put one color of paint in each plate and have your little one dip the palm of their hand in (you may need to use a paintbrush to spread it all over their hands and fingers) and press their hands onto the paper.  You will need to guide them as to where to place each color to create a flag effect.  Use the warm water and paper towels to rinse between each color.  The end result is a unique flag to honor those who fought or are fighting for our country.  Happy Memorial Day everyone!
