Happy Independence Day, U.S.A.

FotorCreatedI love the 4th of July.  Combine that with a cloudy, rainy day yesterday and it called for a day of festive craftiness.

1. Stenciling stars and fireworks with sidewalk chalk.  With the intermittent rain, we chose to do this under the eaves of our front walk.

2. A paint by numbers American flag.  Once the paint was dry, she added a texture element with matching tissue pieces. She loves to wrap the tissue around the tip of an eraser and stick it on with glue.

For those of you who live here in the U.S., we wish you a safe and happy holiday!

    • Hi Beth, thank you for visiting and commenting. Yes, we do specific art projects periodically, usually around holidays or seasonal themes, but my daughter, – who loves painting, coloring, drawing and water coloring – typically prefers non-structured art time. We have done some fun projects, like the Pointillism art back in June and the Easter Egg Tree in the spring and she loved those. If you have any ideas to share, I would certainly welcome them!
