For the Fourth of July, we made this handprint and fingerprint American flag.
Take a large piece of white paper. Have your child dip his hand into blue paint and place it onto the upper left corner. When the blue paint is dry, draw lines with a pencil about an inch apart. Have your child finger paint the stripes onto the lines with red paint. When it's finished, you can tape a wooden dowel to the back of the paper so your child can carry around his new flag.
