So I totally meant to get this post done sooner, but you know.. life! Better late than never right?
Fourth of July Flag
This was a super easy craft to do, and more than likely most people have materials on hand.
Get a red piece of construction paper and cut out white strips and a blue rectangle.
Using a star stamp (or you can cut a star out of a sponge, like I did), stamp some stars on the blue rectangle.
As you can see, the stars are all kind of on top of each other and I’m ok with that. I try to hard to let Annabelle do her thing with out much help from me. Older children will probably be able to space them out more.
Glue the stripes onto the piece of paper.
Once again, Annabelle just put the stripes where ever she pleased (and I realize she is sitting in the W position… it’s a constant battle).
Glue your blue piece of paper onto your flag. There you have it, a fun flag craft.
With older children you could even allow them to cut out their own strips, maybe even read a book about the flag.
Here is another super easy craft to do. All you need to do is rubber band about 8 flexible straws together and bend them.
Then use them as a stamp. Sorry I didn’t take many pictures, I hope the ones I did take make sense.
Annabelle had lots of fun, although she tends to concentrate on just one area, so we ended up with this.
I did one too, so you could see how it would turn out with slightly older kids (or ones who don’t paint the same spot over and over again).

Fun and easy! I hope everyone who celebrate has a happy and safe 4th of July.
