Handprint American Flags
My son brought home this adorable 4th of July shirt from preschool.
I thought it was so cute I wanted a handprint of my daughter too. He wasn't very forthcoming about how it was done, but of course that didn't stop me. I just made up my own way:
Put a small piece of painter's tape on your paper or shirt.
Use red paint to make a handprint with the upper palm covering the painter's tape. Obviously, if you're making a shirt you'll need to use fabric paint.
Remove the painter's tape and paint the rectangle blue.
I used foil stars and number stickers. To make the shirt, his teacher made dots using silver paint and wrote out the year with blue fabric paint.
I think this would be cute to make in honor of the olympics too.
