Stars, Stripes, and Smiles: American Flag Craft for Kids

Let your little artists spark creativity and celebrate Independence Day with their own patriotic masterpiece!

Step 1: Prepare the workspace by covering the table with newspaper or a plastic tablecloth. Gather materials: thick paper, red, white, and blue acrylic paints, paintbrushes, a water cup, and paper towels. Step 2: Paint the left corner of the paper blue using a brush. Allow it to dry completely. Step 3: Once the blue paint is dry, use smaller brushes to add alternating red and white stripes across the paper. Then, with a small brush, add white stars on the blue background. For more fun, create a rocket ship using paint, clear tape, cardboard rolls, cardstock, and scissors.
