When I asked my kids what kind of craft they wanted to make for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, the first idea was to make an American flag. I came up with the idea for my younger kids to make a flag with their fingerprints. This is a fun and easy art project and makes a great decoration that your child can be proud of.
What you'll need:
White construction paper
red and white paint
To make the flag, take white construction paper and draw a square in the upper left corner with the ruler and pencil. Let your child color it with the blue marker and then let him fingerpaint the "stars" with white paint. Then draw lines with a pencil about an inch apart. Have your child fingerpaint the stripes onto the lines. Then let dry and hang for a special Memorial Day decoration.
