4th of July DIY Handprint Flag Art for Kids

Here’s a fun kid craft idea for 4th of July or Veteran’s Day! In the summer we typically pick a few random acts of kindness projects that we can do as a family. This summer we decided to make red, white and blue flag inspired cards for veterans with a note of appreciation inside. These handprint flag cards are a great way to say thank you to our military men and women! You could also do this craft on a canvas to display at home for Independence Day. 


Blank Card
Red, White, Blue Paint

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.
