A very happy Memorial Day to all, and a sincere thanks to all those in our country who serve or have served. We had a very patriotic weekend, catching a local Navy parachute demonstration in honor of the holiday. Travis was smitten, so we brought the patriotic sentiment back home with this easy craft.
Take a walk to collect a few rocks, and then lay them out with red, white, and blue paints.
Older children will definitely have fun drawing replica American flags on their rocks, but for a three-year-old, simply decorating in the colors of our flag was a joy.
He liked choosing which colors should go where!
I added a few lines of paint to a few rocks so that they more closely resembled our flag.
Let the rocks dry, then proudly display as holiday decorations. These would be great for the 4th of July, too!
