American Flag-Themed Painting Activity

At Mediapolis Childcare & Preschool they had a bunch of fun painting an American flag on a large sheet of paper used as a canvas!  They used paint brushes and their hands for this patriotic craft that works great for Meorial Day, July 4th, or Labor Day!

Materials needed for the American flag-themed painting activity

To do this painting activity you will need:

  • A large sheet of paper
  • Tape (any kind that can hold the paper down works)
  • Red and blue paint (tempera or acrylic is best)
  • Paintbrush
  • Hands you don’t mind getting messy

How to do the American flag-themed painting activity

Follow these steps to make your American flag-themed craft:

  1. Lay the large sheet of paper on the floor.
  2. Apply tape all around the edges of the paper to hold it in place.
  3. Decide where the top and bottom of your flag will be.
  4. Start making red lines of paint with your paintbrush (these are the red stripes).
  5. Put blue paint on your hands and put handprints in the top-left part of your craft (where stars are normally seen on the flag).
  6. Wait for the paint to dry and then remove the tape from your craft and proudly display your American flag-themed creation!
