A few years back, when my kids were both preschool age, we completed a giant flag craft as a group project. It’s a great way to let them explore painting and still get a great end result! The secret? Painter’s tape!
Are you ready to begin?
What You’ll Need:
- White poster board
- Red (washable) paint
- Painters tape
- Blue paint
- Star Stickers
What You Do:
Start by making stripes on the white poster board with the painters tape, leaving a square in the top left for the blue and stars.
Allow kids to paint over the tape with red paint.
I put some blue construction paper over the blue/star square to make sure it didn’t get any red on it. And the red was a flying!
Once the flag is thoroughly covered in red paint (whew!), remove the painters tape.
I made the mistake of waiting until the paint was dry. I think it wouldn’t take up so much paper with it if I removed it right away. Paint the square blue and allow kids to put star stickers on it.
Finished! Hang with pride!
