Here’s an easy handprint flag craft your child can make to celebrate the Olympics or to celebrate the Fourth of July!
At our house, we love The Olympics! It’s so much fun to watch all the countries come together to compete. And, who isn’t inspired by the athletes who have worked so hard for a chance at a medal?
That’s why I was so excited to meet gold medalist, Tyler Clary! Procter & Gamble and Lowe’s held a fun event at a YMCA near me. At the #DIYandDIVE day, young swimmers spent the day creating red, white, and blue DIY projects–think “Team USA!”
Tyler, gold medal winner in the backstroke at the 2012 Olympic Games, helped the kids with several fun crafts. Next, they got in the pool for a swimming lesson. Not many kids can say a gold medal swimmer gave them a lesson. It was definitely a day to remember!
I hope you’ll be cheering on Team USA at the next Olympic Games. To get you and your kids in the spirit, here’s a fun craft you can do together.
Handprint Flag Craft
- blank white canvas, white cardstock, or white paper
- red and blue paint (can use fingerpaint or washable paint)
- paintbrush, a small foam brush works well
- old newspaper to work on
- ruler to mark straight lines for the flag’s stripes
- Lay out old newspapers on your work space.
- Measure your canvas or paper’s height. You’ll need to mark off 13 stripes. There are seven red and six white, with red at the top and bottom.
- Leave a large rectangular area in the upper left corner unmarked. It will go unpainted. This is where the “stars” would be on the flag.
- Paint in your red stripes. (You can tape off the white areas, but I didn’t. A kids’ craft doesn’t need to look perfect.)
- After the red stripes dry, paint your child’s hand with blue paint, and make a hand print in the upper left corner.
- Toss the messy newspapers, and clean up any paint on your work space.
I love how our handprint flag craft turned out. Since I used a canvas, it should hold up well over time. This flag craft will also be fun to display on Independence Day!
