I’m sharing how I made a flag handprint craft for Love The GIVE as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #PartnersinGIVE #GIVE2VETERANS
I come from a long line of veterans and my family takes great pride in our great nation. My grandfather is an Army veteran and my father is a Navy veteran. I grew up hearing stories about their time in the military and it left me with a reverence for our service men and women. Thankfully, I never had to experience my dad going off to war to fight for his country. I have several friends who are in that boat right now and I’m incredibly grateful for their sacrifice and their family’s sacrifice.
Veteran’s Day is coming up and it’s a great opportunity to say thank you and give back to our veterans. You can get your kids involved too with this flag handprint card craft. We will be writing a special thank you message in our cards and anytime we see a veteran, we’ll give them a card. We’ve also spotted several veteran license plates and have left cards on those dashboards. A small thank you can go such a long way!
We will also be using the #GIVE2VETERANS hashtag on social media. Every time this hashtag is used, The Love the GIVE foundation will donate $1 to the Bob Woodruff Foundation to support veterans and their families. They will be giving up to $500K, so let’s get hashtaging! Make your own flag handprint cards and post a photo of them on social media using the #GIVE2VETERANS hashtag. Such an easy way to give back!
Red, White, Blue Paint
Small Star Punch
White Card Stock
Glue or Tape Adhesive
Step 1: Paint your child’s hand. Alternate red and white on the fingers and paint the palm blue. Make sure the entire area is covered in paint and be generous.
Step 2: Have your child place his or her hand on the front of a blank card, pressing firmly and lifting straight up.
Step 3: Using a small star punch, punch out white stars and adhere a few to the blue area on the card.
Step 4: Allow to dry and write a thank you message inside. Anytime you see a veteran, give them a card.
