Cute July 4th Flag Craft

Well I am all moved.  Boxes everywhere though, but atleast I have internet again.  I missed you all!! Since my kitchen is not quite ready for a cooking session yet I thought I would share a little easy festive craft! I made these flags with my preschool kids.  They turned out so cute!!
red, white and blue finger or tempera paint (anything washable will do)
cardstock paper for the flag
small stars
sticks for the flag pole (I used skewers)
The only tricky part is you have to work quickly before the paint dries.
Paint the palm of the hand blue. Alternate the fingers white and red.
Press hand down on the paper with fingers straight and thumb extended. (Thumb should look like the flag pole.) Lift hand straight up.   Let paint dry and glue on the stars and add the pole.
The kids had a hard time getting that thumb straight, but they still turned out so cute.
Quick, easy and so cute!!
Happy 4th of July!!
