If you’re looking for a fun 4th of July craft to make this summer, why not try this simple handprint American Flag 4th of July Craft. If you’re not in the USA, you can adapt this basic idea to make other flags too, to celebrate any national event, or sporting occasion.
Doesn’t it look cute?
To make your American flag handprint, you will need:
- Red, White, and Blue craft paints
- White paper
- Paper straw
- Glitter glue
Here’s how to make the 4th July handprint craft with your kids.
First, paint the underside of the hand red, white and blue as seen in the picture.
Then, press the hand down firmly onto the white paper.
You might want to use the brushes to full in any areas that may not have touched the paper enough and to create a flag shape, but be careful not to touch it up too much, you still want to be able to tell that it is a handprint!
Next, glue the paper straw in place on like a flagpole.
Sprinkle silver glitter over the blue or use glitter glue to create a pretty “starry” effect!
And you’re done!
