This is a great paint craft because it easy enough for toddlers (with a little help), but is fun for the bigger kids too. It is super fast and uses things you may already have in your house! This was inspired as a simpler version of this hands and feet flag by Serendipity. My son's attention span is a little too short at this point to do the other.
White Card stock
Red & Blue Finger paint
I covered the table and floor with newspaper and wore an apron because I am paranoid. The little one wore his t-shirt paint smock.
We used a hand print for the blue and an index finger for the stripes of red. We had to dip it multiple times for each stripe, but I love how it turned out. It looks like the flag is waving in the wind.
I let him do a piece of his own artwork too. I wouldn't want to hamper his creativity!
Here is my little finger paint flag's home for the next little while. My little guys first piece of framed artwork. Ahhh. :)
