  3. Cut a small square out of the blue construction paper.
  4. Using the white paint sponge paint white stars on the blue paper. Set aside.
  5. Using the long sponge and red paint paint red stripes onto a white paper.
  6. Glue the Blue paper onto the red and white one and voila you made a cool flag!

  1. Gather your materials. For this flag you will need some white paper, a white crayon , blue and red paint and a paint brush.
  2. Using your white crayons draw lots of long stripes, leaving the area for the stars blank. Then add the stars. This can be hard to do but remember to press hard so that there is a lot of wax.
  3. Carefully paint with blue paint over JUST the stars.
  4. Carefully with red paint paint over the stripes. If the stripes or stars aren’t showing through keep wiping off any extra paint and the crayon should appear.

    Oh i am so stoked to like the site!

    I’ve been putting it off a father’s day craft hoping my son would be over his cold and happily participate. So much for that, poor guy is cranky and miserable.

    So I will do it myself at naptime, you can expect it posted tonight, I have some book recs too!

    My soon to be 4yo is home sick today (so I am home as well) & I think we will do this activity today.

    He’s a little wound up so this should help him channel some energy & give me a cute little decoration for the holiday!
