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.
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.
