Crafting For The Not So Crafty: Kid's 4th of July Hand Painting
Now that school is out, are you looking for fun summer activities for the kiddos?  Well we have the perfect and simple painting craft for Independence Day.
I mean really, who doesn't love to finger paint?!
Here is a simple and easy craft for the little ones in your life this summer.


Step 1:

Wash and iron products.  Both of these items are 100% cotton and will wrinkle.  This stage also helps to remove any sizing that is on the product.


Step 2:

Prep all supplies prior to starting.  We all know nothing goes as planned with kids, but be as prepped as possible.

Step 3:

Time to get messy!  Paint your design on the hand or foot of choice.  We started with the flag heart hands on the child apron.
